Thanks to all of you who have been in touch with the Department of Health Behavior,  shared your updates and participated in events! My priority for our section is to create opportunities for our alumni to connect with each other, with students and with the department.

I am  working with staff in the department and the Gillings School Office of Advancement to enhance their alumni support services. One of our priorities is to leverage the LinkedIn platform to help our alumni connect. More than 1,000 health behavior are on LinkedIn. Mentorship is also a top priority.

Do you have any suggestions on how we can build alumni mentorship opportunities and connections to support our early health behavior graduates?

If you do, please email me at any time at again for all you do, and please keep sharing your updates with us! Read Hannah’s full letter.
