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!

“Terror in a handful of dust”: Exploring the State-Level Pursuit of Radiological Weapons

From our colleagues at the Franklin Environmental Center:

Monday, September 24 at 4:30 PM in Axinn 232

This talk will be given by Sarah Bidgood, Senior Research Associate and Project Manager, James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies, Middlebury Institute of International Studies.  Experts often talk about radiological weapons in the context of terrorism. Significantly less attention is paid to the potential for national governments to develop these weapons. Researchers at the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies have found that a host of countries, including the United States, Soviet Union, United Kingdom, and Iraq, pursued radiological weapons in the past. Using primary source and archival material, they have sought to pinpoint why these programs began, why they stopped, and how this history can inform policy today.

Ms. Bidgood will also be here at CCI on Friday, 9/21 at 12:30 to host a session focusing on the Institute’s Nonproliferation and Terrorism Studies MA program, the new J-term internship program, and the CNS’s Summer Undergraduate Nonproliferation Program. You can read more about that event here.

CCI Pop-Up Quick Questions in BiHall MONDAYS from 7:00-9:00 PM

If you’re not able to get to CCI during the regular Quick Question hours, Nadani Dixon, CCI Peer Career Advisor (PCA), will be hosting September Pop-Up hours in the BiHall Great Hall every Monday from 7:00-9:00 PM or in Proctor Lounge Mondays 2:30-4:30 PM. Find her there to:

Nadani in her own words: “I’m a junior Computer Science major and Gender, Sexuality & Feminism Studies minor from Kingston, Jamaica. At Middlebury, in addition to CS and GSFS, I’ve taken classes in Middle Eastern History, Dance, Math, Sociology/Anthropology and Chemistry. At Middlebury, I’m involved in RIDDIM World Dance Troupe as the Treasurer for 2018-2019, Pan Caribbean Student Organization (PCSO), Black Student Union (BSU), the American Chemical Society, Women in Computer Science (wiCs++) and Steam Girls as one of the Co-directors. I’m interested in the role technology plays in our world today: the challenges and benefits. Simply, the factors, ideas and beliefs that make it a controversial tool and how it is used in our 21st century world.

On campus, I’ve worked as the Dance Technical Director and Performing Arts Series Intern. In Summer 2017, I interned at the Office of Digital Learning and Inquiry here on campus as the Digital Pedagogy and Instructional Design intern. During my internship, I created an app for the Middlebury Museum of Art, developed and design WordPress sites, researched critical digital pedagogy and more. Last summer, I interned at Team4Tech on a project in Costa Rica focused on improving education through technological implementations and teacher training. I love to swim, dance, plan and organize events, practice yoga and garden. I’m excited to be a PCA and look forward to meeting you and answering any and all questions you may have.”

Nadani is an incredible resource and we are thrilled to have her part of our team!
