This internship offers valuable real-life experiences in the linking of practice and research in public health. I am highly interested in the dissemination of research results to better improve population health and health outcomes for communities. This internship facilitates the learning of new areas of public health that I have not previously worked on. I feel both excited and privileged to have been chosen as one of the 2016 TEP-PH interns!

Cassy Greenwood began her Translating Evidence into Practice in Public Health (TEP-PH) internship in July 2016. During her internship, she will write a brief about the 2013-2015 Strategic Plan highlighting the network accomplishments, will create logic models to support the development of a new WPHRN Strategic Plan (2016-2019), and will conduct a literature review on alcohol consumption and effective ways to address alcohol-related issues based on some of the Priority Research Questions from the Network.

Cassy received a Bachelor of Science in Exercise and Sport Science with a Fitness Emphasis from the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse in 2010. She also received minors in Nutrition and Professional Writing. She is currently a second-year Master of Public Health student and Global Health Certificate candidate at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Her background includes personal training, nutrition counseling, and assisting with a textbook update for the American Public Health Association. Her primary interests are chronic disease prevention and control, global health, and social determinants of health.
