"Public health is a multidisciplinary field dedicated to achieving health equity and preventing disease by addressing the social determinants of health."
"My experience working in health care inspired me to pursue a Master of Public Health. When helping patients I was exposed to the public health issues, such as barriers to accessing care, food insecurity, and housing instability, which many Oklahoman’s struggle with."
"Public health is the interdisciplinary field of study whose sole purpose is to investigate, inform, and intervene on any subject that causes harm to the health of the mass population."
"Public health means acknowledging the interconnectedness of our world and using it to address the root of the inequalities in health outcomes that we see today."
"Public health is a collaboration of concepts and ideas that are the foundation for building strong, healthy communities."
"Public health to me is not just the social, economic, judicial, medical, and biological factors that contribute to individual and community well-being, but also finding where we can contribute to and bolster the systems that support this well-being."
