TEACH Education Journal Club

TEACH Journal Club began meeting in early 2016. We invite all TEACH membership levels throughout Carilion, Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine, and Jefferson College of Health Sciences to join and participate in the journal club. Planning committee members include: Ms. Mariah Rudd, (Chair),  Dr. David Musick, Dr. William Rea,  and Dr. Shari Whicker.

The club will meet 6 times annually and will be limited to 15 participants per club and we encourage you to bring your lunch!


The objectives of the Journal Club are:

  • Develop quality improvement strategies to critique and keep up-to-date with relevant health education literature
  • Share current knowledge and translate into evidence-based practice of health education
  • Provide opportunities for scholars to have a discussion on current changes in the health education field.
