Happy New Year!

Dear PHCF,

How oddly quiet the School of Public Health is, while so many are away for winter break! But for those of you who are here at JHMI, you're welcome to join us at any/all of our gatherings:

- Weekly lunch meetings on Thursdays (room E5037 Jan 5 and 12; room E2527 thereafter).
- Small group on Saturdays at 11am in Upper Fells (contact Teresa)
- Small group on Mondays at 7:30pm in the 929 Apartments (contact Mary and Esther).
- Writing Accountability Group (i.e. a study group) on Fridays 4pm in Room W2303.
[For all events, you can access our Google Calendar here!]

You are also invited to the Symposium on Christian Faith, Reason, and Vocation on Saturday February 18 at the Homewood campus: RSVP at 832society.com/symposium -- it will be a great time to fellowship, network, and learn from students, alumni, and faculty from across the Hopkins campuses. (Lunch provided.)

As a reminder, two upcoming deadlines:
1. Paid internship opportunity -- the Joint Learning Initiative in Faith and Local Communities is offering three 8-week internships! Rolling application, so apply soon; ideally, interns will start in January 2017. See previous post for more details.

2. Christian Connections for International Health (CCIH) has announced its call for scholarship applications and abstract submissions to its summer conference (July 13-15, 2017 at Johns Hopkins University Homewood campus). This year's theme is Strengthening Global Health: Faith at the Center. Abstract submissions are due Jan 23. Students and professionals from developing countries may also apply for scholarships, due Feb 6. Two types of scholarships are available: the general conference scholarship for all global health interests and the Luann and Ray Martin MCH Health Scholarship for maternal/child health students and professionals only.

Finally, in all things let’s also remember our dependence on our King who said, “Apart from Me you can do nothing” (John 15:5).
