A Message From the Dean: Remembering Erin Wilson

Earlier this month the College of Public Health lost Erin Wilson, an undergraduate senior in the School of Social Work. Erin was leaving her internship at the Episcopal Campus of Temple University Hospital when she was struck and killed by a car as she crossed Lehigh Avenue. Erin’s classmates, professors and family describe her as energetic, caring, and determined to improve her community. We are all heartbroken.
