De Gullah/Geechee and National Public Health Week
The Gullah/Geechee Sustainability Think Tank has been blessed to be able to convene a cadre of doctors that have been working within the Sea Islands of the Gullah/Geechee Nation on numerous environmental and human health studies.

So, I felt blessed and impressed to emerge from another enlightening engagement with several of our MUSC community outreach partners to see a banner that indicated that it was “National Public Health Week.”
