The BUILD program celebrated the success of trainees on Friday, May 7th, 2021 at the BUILD Virtual Commencement. This event was held online using Zoom as was the 2020 BUILD Commencement. While we were not able to share the joy and pride we feel with our students in person, we were still able to commemorate and recognize their accomplishments as we send another cohort of future Ph.D.s into the world.
The online event featured Dr. Anissa Davis, Long Beach City Helath Officer, as its keynote speaker. Also included were addresses by BUILD PI Jesse Dillon, BUILD student speakers Ashly Campbell (Scholars) and Amanda Finn (Fellows), BUILD Associate Director Keisha Chin Goosby, and a video celebrating the students' completion of the program.
