Noteworthies

Katie Bryan-Jones, daughter of Hardy Jones and Jane-Bryan Jones of Los Altos, was recently awarded a Fulbright Scholarship to undertake study and research in Australia next year. The Los Altos High graduate received a bachelor's degree in Human Biology, graduating with honors from Stanford University in 1997. While at Stanford she received a University Undergraduate Research Opportunities Major Grant to do research in the field of AIDS education and prevention.

The principal purpose of the Fulbright program is to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and those of other countries. Katie's goal is to obtain a master's degree in Public Health from the University of New South Wales in Sydney.

Her project focuses on implementing and evaluating a program to educate Australian physicians about tobacco smoke and cessation intervention strategies.

Katie currently works as a researcher at the University of California's Institute of Health Policy Studies.

The David and Lucile Packard Foundation of Los Altos announced last week the addition of James P. Leape, an internationally recognized leader in conservation, as the new deputy director of its Conservation Program. Leape assumed this position on June 1.

In announcing the appointment, Carol S. Larson, vice president and director of Foundation Programs, stated, "We are delighted to have someone with Jim's background, ability, and talent as a leader in the Conservation Program. His outstanding skills and experience in target-driven global and regional campaigns will undoubtedly enhance our efforts to conserve and restore critical natural systems."

Prior to joining the foundation, Leape served as executive vice president for the World Wildlife Fund, where he led the conservation programs since 1992.
