DECEMBER THEME 2014 EDITORIAL: ‘Tis the Season!
Bonjour readers! We would like to introduce your new editors Joanne Amlag and Belma Halilovic. We are looking forward to the new year and collaborating with our talented PHIN newsletter team. We hope to strive to make the PHIN Newsletter our primary outlet for public health related news, events, and inspire others to share their public health related experiences and opinions.
For the December issue we have a new team and will be introducing two exciting changes, including a monthly theme and a calendar of public health events as well as things to do in Paris. Starting January 2015, one of the major changes to look forward to is the design of the website. We hope to make the layout more accessible and reader friendly with main objectives to increase readership and discuss relevant health topics. We will also introduce new and interesting sections that will highlight the international aspects of the EHESP program. Particularly since the Master of Public Health program is based in Paris with students from all around the world, we have the wonderful advantage to discuss global issues from an international perspective.
As our monthly newsletter will be theme-based, we hope you enjoy our Holiday inspired issue for the month of December with spotlights on our new members of the PHIN newsletter, a controversial OP-ED section we hope you will take the time to provide feedback, and Christmas inspired healthy living and lens sections. Don’t forget to check out our new Calendar section that will provide both social and public health related events. If you are sticking around in Paris for the holidays refer to our Calendar for some holiday related inspiration on things to do in Paris. Also, we would love your feedback, so don’t forget to go to reply to our questions below and voice your opinion on what material you would like to see in our future newsletter issues. Happy Holidays everyone from the PHIN newsletter team!
