Thank you and Farewell
As the manager of the Roundup of News, I would like to personally thank the Fairbanks School of Public Health and its constituents for the time we have had together. For those who may not know, I have relocated to Virginia and my last day will be August 20, 2021. It has been a joy developing this newsletter into what it is today, and serving alongside my wonderful colleague Amanda Briggs as a contact for all things marketing at FSPH. I will cherish all that has come from our chapter together. Farewell friends! --Adrianne Robertson, Writer & Content Strategist
