How do you deliver effective, compassionate health care in a region facing tremendous challenges from political instability, climate change, migration, and terrorism? Scholars, health care professionals, and Vanderbilt faculty and students gathered last week to address that question at a GlobalVU workshop on Western Africa's Sahel region. Co-led by Cornelius Vanderbilt Professor of History Moses Ochonu, the workshop included panelists and participants from across the U.S. and around the world. #sahel#africanhealthcare#GlobalVU#vuhistory#vuartscifaculty#vandygram
This weekend, @vanderbiltaasa showcased their annual Lunar New Year Festival. Thanks to the combined efforts of the students, faculty, and the administration, the Vanderbilt community came together to explore the interaction between culture and success. Celebrating Asian, Asian-American, and Pacific Islander cultures, this year's LNYF featured over 350 student performers and 21 different acts, as well as an amazing art exhibition. Thank you to everyone who came out and celebrated with us!

Q: What made you choose your majors?
A: I’m actually pre-dental. Ever since middle school I’ve wanted to be a dentist. I thought I was going to have to rely on biology, chemistry, all of the sciences... and then what I found out about Vanderbilt was that they had the Medicine, Health & Society program, which I think is a pretty good combination between all of the sciences but also the public health or social side of healthcare. So that’s what pulled me toward MHS - the fact that I could fulfill my pre-reqs for dental school but also take classes I’m a little more interested in too. As for Spanish – I’ve been taking it since middle school and I think it is super helpful for any profession, not even just medicine, but I knew if I continued Spanish it would help me with a lot of my patients that I hope to serve when I am a dentist.
Q: What do you enjoy most about being President of the Black Student Association?
A: I enjoy the relationships I get to make with a lot of the community – I try to get to know people on a more personal level. I remember when I first came to Vandy I joined BSA and I made so many upper classmen friends, I met people in the BCC, I met faculty. So now being president of the BSA, those connections and relationships I get to build with people across campus – that is the greatest thing.
Q: What does Black History Month mean to you?
A: I think BHM is really a time to celebrate. Of course we have a very long way to go, especially with our political climate, campus climate – not that there aren’t a lot of changes that need to be made, but I think BHM is a time where you should celebrate how far we have come as a people. Even people not that far behind us – the work that they’ve done to get us where we are. We should be proud of our history and be proud of where we are now.
