Health Science Graduate Wins University Award for Community Engagement
May 16, 2018
This spring has been a big one for Jocelyn Pineda. She completed her studies in December, making her a January 2018 graduate, and was awarded the 2018 Extraordinary Acts of Service Award from Cal State Fullerton's Center for Internships and Community Engagement.
The health science graduate took part in a yearlong internship with the Center for Healthy Neighborhoods, under the direction of C. Jessie Jones, professor emeritus of health science.
“In my 35 years of supervising students at various Centers and Institutes, Jocelyn stands out as one of the best I’ve had the opportunity to work with," says Jones. "Her efforts and ability to establish trust among the Center’s vulnerable community members should be greatly applaude.”
