The most rewarding experience in my studies was participating in the Undergraduate Research Award Program at Oregon State University. I applied and was selected to work with a professor in their lab on a research project for two terms. At the end, I designed and presented a poster on the findings of my research project with the help of my professor. I learned a lot from this experience and felt like it was what solidified my choice to attend graduate school.
I think the biggest challenges that the field of public health should be focusing on are 1) vaccinations, 2) family planning, and 3) environment health.
