Hyun Sue (Caroline) Kim, a Health Equity Intern at the Institute for Health Equity and Social Justice Research, was given the Constance K. Green Award for Outstanding Field Experience. The award goes to a graduating student that has practical abilities in synthesizing knowledge and skill and in transmitting ideas and application in clinical education, student teaching, or field experience at a superior level.
The student also has complete dedication to a professional health sciences field exemplifying commitment to its goals and standards through work as an officer in related campus or off-campus organizations, editing and writing professional articles and reports, leading seminars, and functioning creatively in new directions.
Hyun Sue’s post graduate plans are to attend the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) to pursue a Master’s of Science in Epidemiology. LSHTM is ranked third in the work for public health, tied with John Hopkins and Harvard University.
Hyun Sue accredits her work at IHESJR as being instrumental to her acceptance to LSHTM, since this is a university that is known to not readily accept students who have just graduated their undergraduate programs. Her work at the Insitute has allowed her to gain practical experience working in the public field related to promoting health equity and reducing health disparities.
