* University of Evansville Announces Institute for Public Health

The University of Evansville has announced a new Institute for Public Health, which will facilitate partnerships that provide hands-on experiences to students while addressing community needs in the area of public health. 

The mission of the institute is to “cultivate multidisciplinary partnerships among faculty, students, and community members in ways that support the planning and development of evidence-based programs and sound policy.”

“The community is where we work,” said William McConnell, PhD, JD, MPH, director of the Institute for Public Health at UE. “The institute will provide UE students and faculty a platform to come together with the community to solve real public health issues.”

William McConnell, PhD, JD, MPH

William McConnell, PhD, JD, MPH, director of the Institute for Public Health at UE, was interviewed following the April 24 press conference at the University of Evansville.

The institute’s first major project has been leading and collaborating with 11 hospital systems around the state of Indiana to conduct a 39-county Community Health Needs Assessment. Projects like this not only connect the University with communities and leaders in health but also provide a range of opportunities for student and faculty collaboration and research.

In addition to serving area needs, McConnell says this is a great opportunity for collaboration across the university and community.

“The Institute for Public Health will be genuinely interdisciplinary, involving students and faculty members from across the institution,” McConnell said. “It is an area that intersects with many of our disciplines - sociology, political science, management, marketing, data science, civil engineering, ethics and social change, and all of our health fields, just to name a few.”

“The services offered by the Institute for Public Health are a great addition to the already remarkable collaborative efforts happening at the downtown health science center,” said UE president Tom Kazee. “UE’s physician assistant and physical therapy programs will be located at the downtown facility, offering numerous opportunities for the institute’s involvement in interprofessional education and collaboration.”

For more information or to request consultation on a public health issue, please visit the institute's website.

* Softball enters final week of home play

The final week of the home schedule is on tap for the University of Evansville softball team, beginning today when the Purple Aces welcome Indiana State to Cooper Stadium for a 6:00 p.m. game.

This weekend, UE will take on Southern Illinois in a 3-game set. Several promotions are on tap on Saturday as T-shirts and cups will be given out; it is also Senior Day and Alumni Weekend.

UE picked up the series win at Valparaiso, taking two out of three games. Morgan Florey led the squad to a 2-0 shutout in the series opener before finishing with a 3-2 win on Sunday; she had 26 strikeouts in the two contests. She also got it going at the plate, batting .44 (4/9) in the 3-game set while Eryn Gould and Toni Galas each checked in hitting .400.

It was just another week at the office for Evansville junior Morgan Florey, who picked up two victories in the circle while tossing three complete games. Her unbelievable season continued as she finished her 20 innings of work with 31 strikeouts and just one walk. After taking the loss in the opener at Indiana State, Florey brought her “A” game at Valpo; in 14 innings of work, she gave up 10 hits, two runs and struck out 26 batters while earning two victories.

In five games of action last week, UE freshman Eryn Gould batted .471 with eight hits in 17 at-bats while leading the Purple Aces to a 3-2 mark. She opened the week in style, going 3-4 with a run scored at Indiana State; game two against the Sycamores saw her go 1-3 while adding two runs and a walk. Her momentum continued into the series at Valparaiso as she posted two more hits in three trips to the plate while scoring her fourth run of the week in game one and wrapped up the week with a hit apiece in the final two contests against the Crusaders.

Last Wednesday, the Aces halted an 8-game losing streak as they defeated Indiana State by a 6-2 final in the second game of a doubleheader in Terre Haute. Evansville plated two runs in the first inning before two more scored in the top half of the sixth when pitcher Jaime Nurrenbern hit a 2-RBI single. After Indiana State plated two in the bottom of the sixth, UE put the icing on the cake with a pair of runs coming from a Morgan Florey single that made it the final of 6-2.

Nurrenbern earned the second win of her career, going the distance while allowing seven hits and just two runs, one of which was earned. In the opener against the Sycamores, the Aces received solo home runs from Lindsay Renneisen and McKenzie Johnson, but a 4-spot by ISU in the bottom of the 5th was the difference in a 6-3 win.

Indiana State stands at 22-22 and 9-10 in MVC action. Leslie Sims continues to lead ISU with a .421 batting average while tying for the team high with 22 runs scored. Bella Peterson, who is batting .364, leads the team with 25 RBI.

Evansville carded a 304 as a team to give the Aces a three-round total of 936 (324 - 308 - 304), nearly moving UE into sixth as the Aces finished just five strokes shy of the Crusaders. Bradley won the team 2018 MVC Championship with all three rounds under 300, finishing the championship with a team score of 883 (298 - 289 - 296) earning the Braves a 15-stroke advantage over second place finishing Southern Illinois.

Senior Tyler Gray closed out his Purple Aces career with his best round of the championship on the final day. Gray recorded a one-over 73 in Tuesday's final round placing him in a tie for 19th with a three-round total of 231 (82 - 76 - 73).

Following Gray was freshman Spencer Wagner, who also tallied his best round of the week on Tuesday. After an 81 and 78 in Monday's first two rounds, Wagner finished the championship with a two-over 74 in the final round for a two-day total of 233.

The Aces leader after the first day, sophomore Cameron Weyer earned a 31st-place finish with a final round 80 giving him a three-round total of 235 (82 - 73 - 80). Just two strokes behind Weyer was sophomore Matthew Ladd, who finished in a tie for 33rd with a tournament-total of 273 (79 - 81 - 77) featuring his best round of the week with a 77 on Tuesday.

In the final round, freshman Noah Reese continued to show his consistent improvement. Reese finished in a tie for 38th after carding an 82 and 81 on in the first two rounds on Monday before closing the championship with an 80 in the final round giving him a two-day total of 243 (82 - 81 - 80).
