Dr. Wodika

  • The Public Health Scholar Bowl is not far away – we need to begin discussions so we can reserve hotel rooms, etc! Dr. Clark and I also found out the Water Tower Inn is unavailable (close permanently as of now) – so other hotel arrangements will need to be made. We’ll need to research cost-friendly options!
