On January 20th, 2016, SDSU NewsCenter recognized SDSU’s seven Sally Casanova Pre-Doctoral Scholars in their piece entitled “Above and Beyond.” Adrian Bacong, a second year MPH student in Health Promotion and Behavioral Science, is Sally Casanova Scholar for the 2015-2016 academic year.
Adrian was awarded funds to explore opportunities in doctoral studies, attend national conferences/symposia, and participate in a summer research experience in his field with a faculty member from a University of California or other doctoral granting institution.
Adrian’s faculty mentor is Dr. Christina Holub, a Research Assistant Professor and Core Investigator for SDSU’s Institute for Behavioral and Community Health. He is currently working with Dr. Holub to address health disparities within San Diego’s Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander community.
We are proud to see our GSPH students continuing their educational and professional careers as future doctoral students!
Applications for the 2016-2017 Sally Casanova Pre-Doctoral Scholars Program are due February 12th.
