CCI Pop-Up Quick Questions in the AFC WEDNESDAYS from 7:00-9:00 PM

If you’re not able to get to CCI during the regular Quick Question hours, Paola Meza, CCI Peer Career Advisor (PCA), will be hosting September Pop-Up hours in the AFC Wednesdays from 7:00-9:00 PM. Find her there to:

  • Develop and review resumes and cover letters
  • Search for internship and employment opportunities
  • Prepare for interviews
  • Access resources like Handshake
  • Refer you to appropriate CCI advisors

Paola in her own words: “Hi! My name is Paola, and I am a senior studying neuroscience and Portuguese from Los Angeles, CA. Outside of the classroom, I serve as co-founder and president of UR-STEM and as a program leader for First@Midd.

However, most of my professional growth has taken place at the Open Door Clinic in Middlebury. Since the fall of 2015, I have been working as an administrative assistant and medical interpreter for Latinx migrant farm workers. Throughout the past three years, I have acquired clinical shadowing experience, a glimpse into health care management, and a new perspective on the disparities that shape care in underserved communities.

Increasing access to equitable health care for all people, especially marginalized people, has always been on the forefront of my career interests. To gain an understanding of care delivery in a larger context, I interned as a Posse Ubben Fellow at the Children’s Health Fund in New York City, a national organization aimed at providing America’s most disadvantaged children with high quality care. I worked on the CHF’s project to reduce health barriers to learning under the supervision of President Emeritus and co-founder Dr. Irwin Redlener and Executive Vice President Karen Redlener. My interest in health care systems brought me back to LA this past summer as a USC Gehr Fellow, where I participated in projects relating to health care systems science and issues of access that my hometown faces.”

Paola is an wonderful resource and we are thrilled to have her part of our CCI team!

Farms, Fish, and Forests: An Ethnography of Climate Change in Maine, Kathryn Olson ’05

Kicking off the Fall 2018 Howard E. Woodin Environmental Studies Colloquium Series with Kathryn Olson ’05, Ph.D. Candidate (Sociology), Boston College

Thursday, September 13, 12:30 PM in Hillcrest 103

How is climate change changing our places? This talk will examine data from interviews with farmers, fishers, and foresters throughout the state of Maine on their experiences and observations of climate change. Part of the Living Change project, this work documents the profound, but often subtle changes in place–and therefore culture and livelihood–that people are observing on the ground in Maine.

Kathryn Olson graduated from Middlebury in 2005 and has a MA in Urban and Environmental Policy and Planning from Tufts University. She is currently a PhD Candidate in Sociology at Boston College. Her research explores the political economy of dam development, food systems sustainability, and theorizations of place, culture, and economy in a changing climate. Check out Kate’s blog for more information on her research.

Cosponsored by the Department of Sociology and Anthropology.
