An ABC News camerman and reporter were recently in the Sheldon Margen Public Health Library filming … a journal article! The news team was here because a recent degree recipient from the School of Public Health's undergraduate major program had his research on hookah (water pipe) use by US students published in JAMA, the Journal of the American Medical Association. ABC News was interviewing S. Katharine Hammond, the SPH faculty member who co-authored the research letter with Wael Noor El-Nachef, who is currently at the Feinberg School of Medicine, Northwestern University. Mr. El-Nachef is also a past winner of the Library Prize for Undergraduate Research.
Watch the ABC News video here (Click on "Watch Video," lower left corner of 2nd photo) and read the JAMA article.
See a description of Mr. El-Nachef's Library-Prize-winning project on the Library Prize web site .
