Dr. Briana Mezuk has accepted a position as Associate Professor in the Department of Epidemiology at the University of Michigan School of Public Health effective January 2017. She will be based in the Center for Social Epidemiology & Population Health (CSEPH), which is also where she was based for her post-doctoral fellowship. She will remain affiliated with the VCU Division of Epidemiology for the foreseeable future and continue to lead several Richmond-based projects, including the Stress & Sugar Study and the YMCA-VCU collaboration. She will be in Richmond on a monthly basis to work with members of the GREMAP team.
Kristen Kelly is also moving to the University of Michigan and will matriculate into the Epidemiology PhD program in January 2017.
This move will bring both Bri and Kristen closer to their families, which are both located in “the Mitten”. But also far away from sunshine and warmth. Far, far away.
