I knew my work could positively impact the community I serve when the results of my dissertation revealed disparities relative to income and race.
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.
The most rewarding aspect of pursuing my degree at Walden University is that I am in control of my future.
