Esterhay said it made sense to donate money from the sale of "Pop- ulation Health: Management, Policy, and Innovation: Second Edition" to benefit student travel. "The authors of the book decided the modest amount of money we earned from book sales could be awarded to students. Travel funds were identified as one area of student need so that is how I decided to desig- nate my share," Esterhay said. Faculty authors are the ticket for student travel Public health professor donates book proceeds to fund student trips Turky Arbaein is the first student to benefit. He received $300 to fund travel to the American Public Health Association (APHA) meeting in Atlanta last fall. "Staying informed on current topics affecting my field of study and networking with public health professionals is an important part of growth as a student and supports my future career," said Arbaein, a PhD student in health management. Arbaein hopes to work in aca- demia, conduct research and produce publications. "I want to become an expert bio- statistician who is able to interpret information on public health, analyze data and make predictions," he said.
