Public health is population health as seen through the lens of a diverse field tied to many disciplines including social, laboratory, and mathematical sciences.
Laboratory research is my first love but I wanted to do more with people and not just with cells and DNA, and epidemiology wound up being an excellent fit.
Some of my research work getting published!
I wish someone had told me to get in as much networking as possible!
Public health should be focusing on advocacy on behalf of vulnerable and underserved populations.
