The School of Public Health Graduate Student Organization (SPH GSO) will host its annual International Night celebration and fundraiser on Thursday, April 3 from 5 pm to 8 pm at the University at Albany Cancer Research Center on the East Campus in Rensselaer, NY. Doors will open at 4:30 pm. The event is free and open to the public and will include cultural performances, complimentary international food, a silent auction and raffle.
All proceeds from the silent auction and raffle will benefit malaria prevention projects organized and run by two current School of Public Health students as part of the Peace Corps' Stomping Out Malaria in Africa initiative. Lindsey Jackson is in her second year as a Peace Corps volunteer in Kenya, and Melanie Bolden is in her first year as a Peace Corps volunteer in Mozambique. Both students are currently enrolled in the Master's International Program and will complete their Master of Public Health degrees at UAlbany after returning from Peace Corps service.

International Night is an annual student-run event organized by the SPH GSO and supported by the School of Public Health's students, faculty, and administration, the UAlbany Graduate Student Association, local businesses, and other members of the campus community.
