C2D2 Highlights

by Michael Laughter | May 2017

Pre-Health Advisor Francisco Castelan was invited to present a session on "Building a Healthy Mentor Relationship" at the Annual Medical Education Conference (AMEC), hosted last month by the Student National Medical Association (SNMA).  The SNMA was founded in 1964 as a sub-group of the National Medical Association to represent students of color pursuing medical careers.  


Ivan Allen College and C2D2 paired with Emory for the first time with the 'Non-Profit, NGO, and Government Job Opportunities' Virtual Career Fair March 31.  The fair targeted liberal arts students, and was the first time non-profit groups were represented in such a large way.  Thirty-four non-profits took part, as did 176 students.


C2D2 has been awarded the Certified Gold Work Green certification from the Office of Campus Sustainability. Recipients receive recognition, a Work Green decal, and some of the other award winners are Facilities Management, CEISMC, Strategic Consulting, Global Learning Center, and Stamps Health Services.  The award is the highest given by the Office of Campus sustainability and is for 'reduction of environmental impact, and making our campus a safer, healthier, and more environmentally friendly place.' Chiragi Patel and Monique Morris coordinated the efforts of C2D2 to receive this honor.
