The University of Florida will no longer forward email to an off campus
email account from your Gatorlink account after October 1, 2005. If you
have not already done so, visit the Gatorlink website at
http://gatorlink.ufl.edu and turn off the forward feature of your account.
All official correspondence from the University of Florida will be sent
exclusively to your Gatorlink account and failure to address this issue
will result in missed information regarding deadlines, financial aid,

to configure your Gatorlink email and suggestions for best practices for
use of electronic mail, visit the Gatorlink web site or contact the UF
Helpdesk (392-HELP).

16. OPPORTUNITY: Public Health Career Day
Anyone who has watched the news in the past two weeks is acutely aware of
how extensive our system of public health services is and how fragile it
can be when exposed to the forces of nature. The public health field
needs bright, energetic, young professionals to meet the needs of our
rapidly changing and always challenging world. We are holding a career
day October 19 in the HPNP Building from 9am to 3pm. In our combined
degree program, qualified UF seniors may take up to 15 credit hours that
will count towards their elective credits for the bachelor's degree and
also count towards the MPH. The 48- credit Master of Public Health
program may also be taken after completion of an undergraduate program.
Typically, it takes 2 years to complete, and students with any
undergraduate major are eligible for admission. Students may also want to
consider an undergraduate minor, which requires 15 credit hours of public
health courses. For more information about MPH programs, please visit our
website at www.mph.ufl.edu or call 1-866-62-UFMPH.
