Guest speaker Dr. Edward @Tues 12:15 W3031, and other announcements
The Sons of Korah begin Psalm 46 remembering who the Lord is: God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble (v1). Despite "the earth giving away" or the "mountains moving to the heart of the sea" or "roaring waters" or "mountains trembling" - despite calamity and uncertainty and stress - the psalmist exhorts the people of God not to fear. Dear ones, will you obey today like the psalmist? "Be still, and know that I am God" (v10). Remember who he is, what he has done - remember Jesus! - and let that be the root of your identity, the inspiration of your dreams, and the motivation for your work in and around the SPH. Here is a song for meditation.
Tomorrow (Sept 17) at 12:15pm in Room W3031, Dr. Anbrasi Edward, a dear faculty member and advisor from the Department of International Health, will be sharing. Bring your own lunch; dessert will be provided.

Our friends at Worldrelief are looking to fill a couple positions:
1) Country Director for Worldrelief Burundi. Strong candidates will have current or prior experience with WR, passion for our mission, French skills, and the ability to work with a variety of mixed donor portfolios – especially inclusive of UN and other public funding.
2) Fall International Programs intern. Ideally the intern needs to be based in Baltimore (for ease of supervision and if their school internship requirements require it), but can consider a remote intern (or volunteer) if their school is ok with a remote arrangement. More than one intern position possible, and can tailor the position to your skillsets.
3) from the Swiss Centre for International Health:
Led by PATH, the Tools for Integrated Management of Childhood Illness (TIMCI) project is a global effort to accelerate availability, adoption and scale-up of tools to identify severe illness and decrease mortality in children under 5 years of age. Within TIMCI, Swiss TPH is in charge of a large multi-country impact and operational research study. India and Tanzania will be the two focus study countries, and Swiss TPH is therefore looking to hire a country coordinator for study activities in both countries. A full description and link to the applications can be found here: Country coordinator India and Country Coordinator Tanzania
