To me, public health is about advocating for all people to experience their full potential.
I was inspired by the idea that work in public health has the potential to improve thousands — and even millions — of lives.
The most rewarding experience of public health for me has been the collaboration: Public health brings together communities, researchers, and policymakers to make the world a better place.
I wish somebody had told me not to be afraid of going to office hours and making time to get to know faculty, even when I didn’t have anything specific to ask them about.
I think the impending effects of climate change pose a major global crisis that public health should be focusing on.
