Immediately after my MPH practicum, I intend to pursue my Ph.D. in Public Health with a specialization in Epidemiology at Walden. I want to teach as well as pursue epidemiologic research studies to contribute to contemporary issues in public health in the United States and around the world.
Walden’s social change mission was very inspiring and guided me throughout my study.
