NYSCHA 2014 Student Winners
NYSCHA is pleased to announce the winners of the NYSCHA 2014 Student Awards.
NYSCHA 2014 Student Award: Congratulations to Ms. Yi Wan Wu from Stony Brook University. During the past year Yi Wan, who is also a nursing student, led efforts to conduct a campus student health fair that included the Bone Marrow Registry, oral health screenings of those who reported use of tobacco, no cost anonymous HIV and Hepatitis C testing along with spearheading the distribution of health resource information throughout the event. Yi Wan is also invested in health outcomes and health education that concentrates on health education and prevention.
NYSCHA 2014 Student Group Award: Congratulations to “SHAC – Student Health Advisory Committee – Tobacco Free SUNY” from Stony Brook University. The SBU Kick Butts students submitted the winning entry of their efforts supporting a tobacco free SUNY. Over 500 students attended this event, which included petition circulation and creation of photos and videos, which among other issues, heightened awareness of the global impact of tobacco harvesting and physical health risks affiliated with harvesting as experienced by children and adults who actually work in the harvesting process.
