PUBLIC HEALTH STUDENT TEAM WINS AWARD, $500
Emory’s Student Outreach and Response Team (SORT) took second place in the annual 2005 Linkage Awards. Presented annually by the Council on Linkages Between Academia and Public Health Practice, the awards recognize exemplary community-based collaborative activities between public health practice agencies and academic institutions.
The Rollins School of Public Health Center for Public Health Preparedness and Research and the DeKalb County Board of Health developed SORT to help bridge the gap between classroom theories and the realities of public health practice. The program received $500 from the Council on Linkages for the second place award to help participants enhance the program.
