Blackstone named first Lotsof intern
DeKALB – Sarah Blackstone, a graduate student in public health and a lifelong DeKalb resident, is the first recipient of the Toni Lotsof Internship through Health Enhancement, Northern Illinois University’s health promotion program in the Division of Student Affairs and Enrollment Management.
Blackstone is working this summer with Live Healthy DeKalb County, a collaborative initiative of Kishwaukee Hospital, the Kishwaukee Family YMCA, the DeKalb County Health Department and other community groups. She is assisting with initiatives related to fitness and community gardens.
“I’m really enjoying working with the variety of projects that are part of Live Healthy DeKalb County,” Blackstone said. “It is exciting to be working hands on out in the community, applying knowledge and skills that I learned in the classroom and in my research projects. The people that I’ve met and worked with are great and are committed to making DeKalb County a healthier place to live.”
