What does public health mean to you?

Public health, as for me, is taking care and responsibility for the people around us.

What inspired you to study public health?

Imperfection of the healthcare system in CIS

What has been the single most rewarding experience of your career or studies so far?

A single gratitude from our patients is worth years of studying. There is nothing more rewarding than the fact that you helped someone, and their quality of life had increased because of you

What do you think is the biggest challenge facing public health today?

On the one hand there is a lack of experience in young specialists, and on the other hand there is a problem in elders to keep in touch with technical progress. Because of that there are few employees who are both experienced and open-minded.

What advice would you offer someone who is thinking about a career in public health? 

Never forget about your goal. Diligence is the mother of success
