Last week HEI held its annual End-of-Spring-Semester Luncheon where we celebrated our 2016 student scholars who have supported HEI researchers and contributed to HEI research projects this past year. HEI Director Dr. Cynthia A. Gómez presented each student with a certificate of recognition for their work.

Minority Stress and Mental Health Post-Doctoral Fellow Alexander Lu also received a certificate of recognition for his contributions as well as congratulations and well wishes on his new appointment as Assistant Professor of Sociology at Francis Marion University in South Carolina.

The event included great food, conversation and a surprise birthday cake for faculty and staff born in the months of April and May.
