ASPPH would like to thank Ms. Ashlee Nelson, the This is Public Health (TIPH) Ambassador from the University of North Dakota (UND) MPH Program, for taking over our social media this week. Ms. Nelson is currently an MPH student concentrating in policy and health management. Through her work with our social media platforms, she highlighted National Suicide Prevention Week.
She has worked on the opioid response team in Grand Forks, ND expanding the harm reduction services in her community. Also, she served on a research grant that aimed to enhance the experiences of American Indian youth in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields in middle and high schools to excite and encourage students to pursue post-secondary education.
Outside of work, Ms. Nelson volunteers for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention to coordinate the annual UND Out of the Darkness Campus Walk and is the vice president of her local park board.
Her passion is in behavioral health but is interested in all realms. Ms. Nelson says that she “strives to make meaningful connections with each population I am lucky enough to serve, so I can focus on their needs that they identify for themselves.”
Follow along throughout the year on all our social media platforms to witness the incredible work our TIPH Ambassadors are sharing.Tags: Friday Letter Submission, Publish on September 13
