Campus Champion

C.J. White is in the final stretch of his community health degree requirements and begins his field experience internship at Tompkins Cortland Community College this week. The SUNY Cortland track and field star seeks to expand his knowledge of exercise, nutrition and anatomy and sees graduate school on the horizon. Undergraduate research offered him an opportunity to present a poster at the AMERSA conference in Boston in November. Working with Assistant Professor Vierne Placide, C.J. presented on combating the opioid epidemic through looking at the whole person when treating addiction. It’s a concept he can incorporate in whatever community health path he takes.
