SPH Hosts Korean Students for Technologies for Public Health Training Program
This summer, Dr. Jae Kun Shim, Associate Professor of Kinesiology, is coordinating a special exchange program for 60 students from Kyung Hee University, Korea who are interested in learning about engineering technologies used for public health. The group includes engineering students and high achieving freshmen.
SPH faculty members including Jae Kun Shim, Amy Sapkota, Amir Sapkota, Jeanie Phillips, and Marcio Oliveira are providing classroom instruction and hands-on experiences of research techniques and technologies for the students. Topics include environmental pollution, obesity and physical activity, technologies to improve public health education, and neuromechanics to prevent physical injuries.
