Marissa Singer, MPH

Dartmouth - Geisel School of Medicine Graduate Programs
Health Policy & Clinical Practice

What inspired you to study public health? 

I wanted to understand systems that impact health (politics, built environment, economics, education) so that I can dedicate my career to disrupting the barriers they impose on equitable health delivery and outcomes.

What has been the single most rewarding experience of your career/studies so far? 

I have yet to experience this, I believe graduating with my MPH will be the beginning of a rewarding career.

Where did you do your practicum? What was it about? 

I was mentored by Dr. Roshini Pinto-Powell who leads medical education programs at Dartmouth Geisel school of medicine to create a guidebook on building integrated critically conscious, health equity curricula in the medical school curricula.

What do you hope to accomplish in your career? 

I hope to disrupt systemic inequities to improve health outcomes for historically marginalized populations.


Change doesn’t happen quickly, but can be effective through collaborations that involve community input. By building a strong foundation for change with community members involved as stakeholders every step of the way, we can begin to enact comprehensive systems change.
