In our August newsletter, we celebrated the graduation of our first cohort that began their journey with us in September 2018. We also spotlighted some of the scholars from cohort 2. Even though we're social distancing that hasn't stopped us from connecting and getting things done like virtually attending seminars like our ongoing Professional Development Series and a Q&A about Racial Health Disparities. 

 Volume 2 Issue 3 

May brought many new and exciting changes to UHAND. In this issue, we introduce you to our new cohort and two additions to the team! Our current scholars have also been busy with conferences, research, presentations, and getting accepted to grad school.

This quarter UHAND started recruiting a new cohort of scholars. In addition, we welcomed Dr. Chakema Carmack as a UHAND mentor, congratulated Dr. Kayce Solari Williams and Dr. Lorraine Reitzel on their outstanding accomplishments, and cheered along with our scholars for their amazing contributions to health and science.

This summer marks 1 year since our Scholars began their 2-year appointments with UHAND. To date, our Scholars have completed over 340 hours of their service learning experience through which they serve and learn from our community partners. Additionally, over the past year, the UHAND Community Outreach team has reached over 9,000 people through various activities (e.g., dissemination of information, health fairs, cancer education classes).

During University of Houston's Day at the Capitol, our UHAND undergraduate Scholar, Christine Smith, shared her story with legislative aides. She talked about the benefits of having a state scholarship and the real-world experience she gets through the University of Houston’s partnership with MD Anderson.

 Volume 1 Issue 2 

Our Scholars have also been conducting research and communicating their research findings at events such as the Humana Integrated Health System Sciences Institute Kick-Off Event.

 Volume 1 Issue 1 

The UHAND program kicked off our new partnership to address cancer disparities among black and Hispanics at an evening reception which brought together over 85 people including leaders from both institutions, as well as faculty, students, and local community members.

The UHAND Partnership is funded by the National Cancer Institute (P20CA221696 and P20CA221697).
