Come celebrate Randi Love and the difference she has made in her public health career
Randi Love’s long and successful career will be recognized at her retirement celebration event at Cunz Hall at 4 p.m. on May 25.
Love has been a faculty member at OSU for nearly 20 years. She earned her PhD from The Ohio State University’s College of Education in 1997 and currently serves as clinical associate professor in the Division of Health Behavior and Health Promotion in the College of Public Health.
Congratulations to Leslie Carson, a Master of Public Health and Master of Social Work dual degree candidate, for receiving a 2016-2017 CPH General Scholarship.
As a long term goal, Leslie would love to influence health policy at the national level and has interests in substance abuse, mental health and addressing the social determinants of health to reduce health disparities.
I’ve come to realize that no matter what stage of life we are in, we all end up jumping a series of hurdles or goals in hopes of reaching the ultimate finish line. Everyone’s hurdles are different, but you could say that my latest was my summer MPH practicum experience. My practicum consisted of a Benefits/Wellness internship position with Huntington National Bank headquarters in downtown Columbus, Ohio.
Leah is an exceptional student who is passionate about public health and has chosen to pursue her MPH in Health Behavior and Health Promotion to better understand what influences people to change their health behaviors. This summer, she is working as an HR Benefits Intern at Huntington Bank to help with their Corporate Wellness programming as an opportunity to explore this arena as a potential career path. In the future, Leah hopes to work in consulting or corporate wellness to help make the work environment healthy and enjoyable for everyone.
“The people who have been willing to help me are selfless and exceptional and I hope that I will be able to do the same for others in the future,” says Leah.
This May, Gabby Glenn will travel to Ethiopia for the second time to train more than 170 health workers on the importance of folic acid and hydrocephalus prevention.
Glenn first visited Ethiopia in 2013 as a pre-Occupational Therapy (OT) student. She worked with the Reach Another Foundation to help them open up much needed schools for children with Autism. It was after this that Glenn confirmed her love for global public health and decided to pursue a Master of Public Health specializing in health behavior and health promotion.
