WHAT WE DO


The Epidemic Proportions Undergraduate Public Health Journal is designed to highlight student research, fieldwork, and interest in public health through a selection of diverse articles. Each article emphasizes a unique perspective or experience. This year we publish the 14th volume of our journal, an effort made possible by the contributions of our talented and passionate team of staff and authors.

EPIDEMIC PROPORTIONS

COMPASSION IN EVERY CORNER


The theme of this year’s journal is Compassion in Every Corner, which highlights the different challenges present in the many different parts of the world. Despite the diverse nature of public health, we are all united by common principles.

VOLUME 14, SPRING 2017

We are at a time when we need to remember compassion more than ever, especially in public health. How, as a community, a nation, and a world, can we come together to alleviate the issues of our time? As future leaders, we must be mindful of our dialogue concerning public health. Beyond that, as citizens, our actions and votes must show that compassion. Public health is meant to prevent sickness and disease. We need to separate our politics from helping the needy. We cannot let it stop us, as human beings, from helping each other, from being compassionate, or from caring for one another.

We hope that after reading this issue of Epidemic Proportions, you too are inspired to dedicate yourself to public health in a more compassionate manner.

HIGHLIGHTS

”Dr. B said he will never forget: “Y’all the first people to treat me like a real human being.” I think nothing more captures the importance and beauty of humanity, public service, and a rudimentary empathy for others.” -Vijay Ramasamy ‘19

”If I had known what public health was, I wouldn’t be in this mess. It means knowing the time and place for medicine and whether it’s the right thing to do, not only whether it’s the right thing for the body.” -Prisoner at Chesapeake Detention Facility

”For long-term success, two kinds of compassion will be necessary. First, make efforts to compassionately serve the people in your field. If you deeply connect with your population, you will stay at the cutting edge because your innovative solutions will actually work for the people you’re serving. Second, through the difficulties you encounter, make efforts to treat yourself compassionately. Doing so will help you make self-improvements and generate the stamina needed to make a difference.” - Dr. Mieka Smart
