Joe Ford launches new student engagement initiative, earns Culture Coin












Joe Ford, JD, associate vice president of USF Health Shared Student Services, was recently presented with a USF Health Culture Coin by Donna Petersen, ScD, MHS, CPH, dean of the USF College of Public Health.

Ford earned the honor for his new initiative that showcases the artistic talents of the USF Health student population.  He worked to put together an annual student photography competition that determines which photos will be displayed throughout the common areas of The WELL. The first photography exhibition launched last month features photography of long-time USF Health photographer Eric Younghans, who recently retired. Younghans’ work will remain on display for about a year, when the student winners’ work will be displayed.
