The inaugural CEHS Dean's Service Award has been given to Dr. Carly Strouse.  Dr. Strouse's project, Implementation of a Mental Health Toolkit for African American/Black Families in Solano County, will use this funding toward costs of implementing a free, online mental health toolkit for African American women of childbearing age and their families, in an effort to de-stigmatize mental health and increase utilization of proper perinatal mental health care.  Congratulations Dr. Strouse!


Congratulations to Dr. Annette Aalborg  whose research intervention pilot program Youth in Action for Health Equity  at Vallejo’s Jesse Bethel High School has received funding from Healthy Solano to begin phase two of the project! The goal of this collaborative project is to increase Public Health, Physician Assistant and Public Health Nursing career readiness with low income ethnically diverse high school students. Dr. Aalborg is  supported in this project by TUC Master of Public Health students. Great job all!
