Center for Public Health Education News

This year marks the 35th Anniversary of World AIDS Day, an annual event that serves as a reminder of the global struggle to end HIV-related stigma, an opportunity to honor those we have lost, and a rallying cry to commit to working toward a day when HIV is no longer a public health threat.

On December 1st, Debra Brown, JD, senior education specialist for SHP's Center for Public Health Education (CPHE), was presented with the Distinguished Provider Award at the World AIDS Day Celebration sponsored by the Nassau-Suffolk HIV Health Services Planning Council at the United Way of Long Island. Debra has worked in the HIV/AIDS field for the past 30+ years in various positions, including education and training for health professionals, supervising HIV/AIDS case management and independent living housing programs, and working for the NYS Department of Health's AIDS Epidemiology Unit. She has also co-authored a research study examining the relationship between AIDS knowledge vs. risk factors for incarcerated women, which was published in the Journal of Sociology and Social Research. Debra has a bachelor's degree in social work and a doctorate in jurisprudence.  She has worked at the CPHE since 2001.  We are very proud of her accomplishments and contributions to the fight to end the HIV epidemic.

In addition, CPHE Director, Stephen Sebor and Debra Brown attended the Ending the Epidemic (ETE) Summit and World AIDS Day Celebration which was held in Albany New York from 11/28-11/30.  Throughout the summit, the value of peer-delivered services was highlighted.  CPHE serves as the Peer Certification Academic Center of the NYS Peer Worker Certification Program, for peers with shared lived experience of HIV, Hepatitis C, Harm Reduction or Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP).  For more info on the certification program visit https://www.hivtrainingny.org/Home/PeerCertification or contact the Center for Public Health Education at 631-444-3209.

Inken Prochilo Graduates with Doctorate in Occupational Therapy

Congratulations to Dr. Inken Prochilo, who graduated on December 2nd with a Doctorate in Occupational Therapy from Eastern Kentucky University! Inken’s research was in fieldwork, developing and delivering a one-day, six-hour workshop this past July for novice therapists who had never supervised a Level-II fieldwork student. The workshop was developed to determine if it would increase their perceived preparedness, confidence, and willingness in supervising a student.

Inken is clinical assistant professor and academic fieldwork coordinator of SHP's occupational therapy program.  Her primary work setting prior to transitioning to academic has been in pediatrics, both in school-based and homecare. Inken is a member of AOTA, the New York State Occupational Therapy Association, and the NY/NJ Metropolitan Occupational Therapy Educational Council.

Jeannie Guglielmo receives CELT’s 2023 Celebration of Teaching Award for Excellence in Assessment

Congratulations to Jeannie Guglielmo, MS,MAT, MLS(ASCP)CMrecipient of CELT’s 2023 Celebration of Teaching Award for Excellence in Assessment.  Provost and Executive Vice President, Carl Lejuez, presented Jeannie with this award on Wednesday, August 23, 2023 at Stony Brook University’s First-Year Student Convocation.

Jeannie graduated from the clinical laboratory sciences (CLS) program at Stony Brook’s School of Health Professions in 1994 and went on to earn a Master’s in forensic science from the University of New Haven in 1996. Specializing in biological sciences and DNA, she worked for Florida Department of Law Enforcement and then the Suffolk County Crime Laboratory in Hauppauge, NY, as a forensic scientist. After 10 years working cases on the bench in the crime laboratories, which included processing crime scenes, Jeannie changed careers by pursuing a Master’s in teaching in biology. Upon earning an MAT in biology from SUNY Stony Brook in 2007, Jeannie worked as a licensed NYS teacher in grades 7-12, teaching biology and forensics. In addition to her experience with middle and high school students she served as an adjunct professor for the CLS Department at the School of Health Professions since 2000, teaching various forensic science electives. Jeannie served as an Educational Specialist for the HCARE Program from 2010 to 2011, and as a science adjunct faculty member for the HCOP Summer Academies from 2010 through 2012. Since 2011, she has served as a full-time clinical assistant professor for the CLS department, teaching clinical chemistry and forensic science. In 2016, she was appointed clinical associate professor, and from January 2018 until September 1, 2019, served as vice chair of the CLS department. In 2019, she was appointed interim chair, and in 2021, was selected to be the chair of the CLS department, the very program from which she received her bachelor’s degree. In addition, Jeannie is actively engaged as an academic advisor, and participates in numerous community outreach programs in the fields of education and science both on campus, locally and nationally.

“I maintain the fundamental belief that my role as an educator is to support students in every aspect of their progression in the Life Cycle of an academic institution—from initial connection, entry, progress, completion, to alumni status. As such I aim to create an intentional, systemic, holistic, and transformative approach to ensuring student learning by striving to incorporate assessment activities that will allow every student to make steady, efficient progress in my courses. My goal is to create a culture of student success and to meet students where they are, addressing their needs along the journey. In my leadership role at SBU’s School of Health Professions, I not only champion these ideals, but I also focus my colleagues to concentrate upon these ideals as demonstrated by a student success summer series I am hosting based off of the book, “Becoming a Student Ready College” and a leadership project for the Association of Schools Advancing Health Professions that I am spearheading focused on creating a resource center that would allow faculty to integrate student-focused learning activities within their curriculum.”

Occupational Therapy in Morocco

Fifteen occupational therapy students, led by Dr. Dale Coffin, engaged in a unique service learning trip to Morocco. During the 10-day trip, the OT students had the opportunity to participate in hands-on learning and treatment at a special needs school, an orphanage for babies, a women's hospital specializing in cancer and the Autism Foundation of Morocco. The students worked with people of all age groups at a number of clinics across seven cities in Morocco, including Casablanca, Marrakech, Essaouira, Rabat, Kenitra, Fes, and Azrou. They visited MAIR Neurorehabilitation Clinic, the only nursing home in Morocco, which also serves as an orphanage, as well as the King Mohamed Rehab School.

People travelled from across Morocco seeking medical advice and evaluation from the team. The future occupational therapists worked with speech-language pathologist, Christina Raschella of New York, occupational therapist, Nelline Cox of New York, and local occupational therapists to provide education to the community. They met with people with a number of disabilities, including children with cerebral palsy, individuals with traumatic brain injuries and Down syndrome, and cancer clients. During their stay, the group stepped outside of their clinical roles to help provide much-needed aid to the communities they visited. They raised $500 to benefit a privately funded women's cancer clinic and distributed feeding supplies, clothing, school supplies, toys, toiletries, sneakers, and shoes to all the facilities visited.

School of Health Professions Pediatric Interprofessional Education Day

On April 14th, students from the School of Health Professions Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Physician Assistant, and Speech-Language Pathology programs worked together to learn about 'rare' pediatric diagnoses on Pediatric IPE Day, and how these professions contribute to the assessment, treatment and advocacy for affected individuals and their families.  The highlight of the day was keynote speaker, Avery Roberts, a 15 year-old dancer and an advocate on behalf of her "rare community".  Avery also judged the video presentations created by the interprofessional student groups that were assigned 5 different not-so-rare diagnoses.  It was hard for her to choose from the outstanding entries, but the group, pictured with Avery, and their TikTok video on Angelman Syndrome, won the highest honor of the day!
