Public Health is empowering individuals to make positive changes in their own health as well as in the community around them.
I’ve always had a heart for people and when I discovered this discipline, I felt that I could use the knowledge and tools from this field to make a greater impact on the communities around me.
The most rewarding experience is seeing how the work I’m doing is actually impacting lives and that individuals are disseminating this information to others.
I wish someone would have told me to look at all the different areas of public health. There are some fields you may not even know about and that could be where your true passion is.
The biggest challenge public health should focus on is educating people on how to access and utilize all the resources that can benefit them.
