To fulfill this mission, the school adapts to the evolving needs of students and their families through a commitment to compassion and educational excellence.

SPH faculty and family supporting and participating in the event included Dr. Tracey Barnett, Dr. Stacey Griner, Dr. Malinee Neelamegam, Dr. Charlotte Noble and Dr. Erika Thompson.

“My five-year-old son Dhruv, who attended the 5K event, is excelling at the Jane Justin School, and the Wrangler Run is a fantastic event that unites JJS families,” Neelamegam said. “As immigrants to this country, having our SPH family here to support Dhruv is incredibly meaningful to us.”

The School of Public Health eagerly anticipates joining in the Wrangler Run again next year.
