GSPH sale raises money for Wei scholarship

The Graduate School of Public Health raised $3,468 at a May 1 art and jewelry sale fundraiser to benefit the Evelyn H. Wei Memorial Scholarship Award in Epidemiology. This year’s event, which featured works handmade by faculty, staff and friends of GSPH, brings the total to $30,319 raised for the scholarship since 2004.

The scholarship fund was established in memory of Pitt researcher Evelyn Wei, who was struck by a vehicle in 2004 while walking near her Regent Square home. Wei earned her PhD in psychiatric epidemiology at GSPH.

The fundraiser is held twice a year, with the next sale set for Dec. 4. For more information, contact Donna Gibbons at
