The Mel and Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health received a $5,000 grant from the Terracon Foundation to support graduate students pursuing degrees in environmental and occupational health and industrial hygiene.

Derek Koller, environmental department manager at Terracon in Tucson, Arizona presented the check to faculty and students in the environmental health sciences (EHS) section on Jan 9. Derek has another connection to everyone in the photo. He is a master of public health student in the industrial hygiene program at the Zuckerman College of Public Health.

“One of the many great things about working for Terracon is that we can help local universities and non-profits leverage Terracon Foundation grants that make a positive impact in our local communities,” Koller wrote in a recent post on LinkedIn.

Many thanks to the Terracon Foundation and Bear Down!
