SPPH’s Jennifer Gardy and Professor Santa Ono Host UBC Blue & Goldcast

The Blue and Goldcast is a monthly podcast cohosted by Jennifer Gardy and Santa Ono.  Jennifer is an assistant professor at UBC’s School of Population and Public Health, a Canada Research Chair in Public Health Genomics, and a Senior Scientist at the British Columbia Centre for Disease Control. And she’s a talented communicator, acting as an occasional host of CBC’s The Nature of Things, and on the Discovery Channel’s The Daily Planet. She’s even cowritten a children’s book on germs and microbes.

Jennifer Gardy and Santa Ono will discuss big issues in higher education, from the perspective of UBC scholars, staff, and students. Each episode will focus on a different theme, such as student diversity, international engagement, women in STEM, and other topics.

The first podcast is available today, September 17. You can listen to it on blueandgoldcast.com, subscribe on iTunes, or hear it on CiTR 101.9FM. Future episodes will be released the second Monday each month.
