Because we all deserve a chance to live health lives.
Last spring, I took part in filming a video for the OSU-Women’s Heart Alliance, whose mission pushes awareness and prevention to advocate for strong heart health for women and girls. This program/alliance is perfect example of my future goals. In my future career as a Public Health PhD, I would like to create programs that have the potential to increase the health and well-being of the public, particularly where health disparities and inequities are involved. From connecting vulnerable populations to resources, to educating the public at large about beneficial health behaviors, I want to have the mark I leave behind to be an lesson or resource that can affect people beyond our first meeting.
