Dr. Terence Gipson

In our Patron Perspectives series, we’re sharing stories from some of the people in our community. This week, Dr. Terence Gipson shares his experiences with us!

Dr. Gipson is an Assistant Professor of Public Health at St. John Fisher University in Rochester, New York, where he teaches courses related to health policy, health administration, health equity, and program planning. He earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in Global Studies, as well as a Master of Public Health in Health Administration, from Michigan State University. He received his doctorate in Health Promotion Sciences from the University of Oklahoma, where he also completed his fellowship in neurodevelopmental disabilities. During his time at MSU, the East Lansing Public Library became a second home for him, and we are delighted to continue collaborating!

Since 2016, Dr. Gipson has also served as Program Director of the Next Young Phenom (NYP) Foundation, an organization that connects resources to youth to encourage their engagement in both the arts and technology. As part of NYP’s summer STEAM Camp this year, kids came to ELPL to participate in art projects and learn about our Maker Studio technology. Many of the students even signed up for a library card!
