“I feel honored to be awarded the 21st Century Student Scholarship.  Many student-scholars have worked diligently to become stewards of public health education, and I feel a certain responsibility in representing my peers because of this award.  I want to thank my peers and mentors for the opportunity to represent them, and I am confident that I will apply the knowledge gained from this 68th annual meeting to furthering the vision, mission, and values of the Society for Public Health Education.”
