Public Health Coordinator

Saybrook’s Public Health Coordinator

Jeffrey Hall is a first-year graduate student pursuing an M.A.R. in History of Christianity through Yale Divinity School. He is originally from North Carolina, but lived in Minnesota for five years prior to this. Jeffrey studied theology during his undergraduate degree, and afterwards worked for a non-profit counseling center before coming to Yale. His academic interests are primarily in the history and theology of the early modern and patristic periods, and particularly in the history of pastoral care. For fun, he enjoys music, reading, travel, good food, and spending time with friends and family. Jeffrey is excited to be a part of the Saybrook community this year, and looks forward to getting to know everyone! Feel free to contact him at

What is a Public Health Coordinator?

Public Health Coordinators (PHCs) provide supportive on-site crisis intervention and emergency management for Yale College students, with remote support as necessary from professional staff. The PHCs do not provide counseling or emergency services themselves. They are an on-site resource to direct students to professional resources or direct professionals to students in need, acting as a liaison when necessary. The PHCs must sign, model and abide by the Yale Community Compact. Students who are having trouble living up to their Compact commitments may be referred to the PHCs for guidance and support. The PHCs will report to a Yale Mental Health and Counseling professional and to a member of Yale College Student Affairs. Each PHC will participate in an on-call schedule to collectively cover the residential colleges 24/7 when the undergraduates are in residence.
