CUNY Campaign Against Diabetes Archive
From 2006-2010, the Center for Human Environments/Health & Society Research Group was headquarters to the CUNY Campaign Against Diabetes, an effort directed by Hunter College Distinguished Professor of Public Health Nicholas Freudenberg and supported by a combination of CUNY Central Office funding and a grant from the New York State Health Foundation. CUNY CAD hosted a series of workshops for CUNY staff and students at the Graduate Center, and conducted a number of CUNY-wide diabetes education and research initiatives. Hollie Jones, Ph.D., now on faculty at Medgar Evers College, served as CUNY CAD project coordinator in its first year; Lorraine Mongiello, a doctoral student in public health, assumed that position in subsequent years.
