Dr. Bailey and Graduate Assistant Shanekia Joyner
2014 ERHD Spring Graduates

This was a particularly special year for our ERHD program as well because this was the first year that we had a graduate assistant. Shanekia Joyner was the first graduate assistant of the ERHD program and I want to recognize her outstanding weekly effort and achievement in the ERHD program. I have also included a picture of Shenekia and I.
In addition to our 5 ERHD MPH graduates, the ERHD program also graduated another student. She is apart of another ECU program and her name is:
In summary, the ERHD officially graduated SIX ERHD students during the 2014 spring ceremonies. I was very proud of each student’s achievement and their hard work throughout the program. I felt honored to help them move to the next stage of their fantastic careers!
Final Note: I want to personally thank all of the previous ERHD graduating classes. You have made our continual growth and success possible!
