Doctoral student gets hands-​​on research experience in population health

Through Northeastern’s pop­u­la­tion health doc­toral pro­gram, Cas­sidy Griffin com­bines her doc­toral studies with research at MEDITECH, a Massachusetts-​​based health infor­ma­tion com­pany. In so doing, she is learning how to con­duct both dis­covery– and innovation-​​driven research on how pop­u­la­tion health and data ana­lytics can help orga­ni­za­tions improve effi­ciency and effec­tive­ness of health­care delivery.

To give and to receive

We sur­veyed the campus com­mu­nity, asking a handful of stu­dents to tell us what gifts they plan to give and receive this hol­iday season. The responses ran the gamut, cov­ering every­thing from clothes and elec­tronics to hand­made paint­ings, dream catchers, and orange candy canes.

Fall fun in the sun

Thou­sands of North­eastern stu­dents packed the campus quads on Monday for Fall Fest ’15, an annual fes­tival cel­e­brating the start of the new semester with music, food, dance per­for­mances, games, and give­aways. The campus-​​wide event also show­cased the university’s more than 300 student-​​run clubs and organizations.
