Alum selected as Employee of the Month
Praveena Harnarine, a Stempel summer 2012 graduate, was selected as the October 2013 Employee of the Month by the Florida Department of Health in Miami-Dade County (formerly Miami-Dade County Health Department).
Praveena was a student in the Department of Health Promotion and Disease Prevention and conducted her practicum with the Office of HIV/AIDS for the Health Dept. Her practicum project involved the planning and execution of HIV/AIDS awareness, testing, and education through Take Control community events and the CDC’s Enhanced Comprehensive HIV Prevention Plan (ECHPP). She stayed on as a volunteer after completing her practicum and was hired a few months later as the Take Control Coordinator.
