    Why did you choose public health?

    My interest in public health is I am passionate about making a difference with individuals and tribal communities through identifying the main causes of negative health outcomes among Indigenous people. I want to prevent illnesses and give tribal communities culturally competent approaches to eliminate health disparities.

    Why did you choose MEZCOPH?

    I chose MEZCOPH because of the diverse professors and the incorporation of Indigenous professors and offering a few Indigenous courses that I have interest in.

    Behavioral Health, Biostatistics, Cancer, Disease Prevention, Diabetes, Environmental Health, Epidemiology, Health Disparities, Health of Women, Children and Families, Health Promotion, Integrative Medicine, Native American Health, Nutrition & Diet, Obesity, Planning and Evaluation, Public Health Policy, Rural Health

    Tip for future students:

    Work hard in your classes and ask help from the TAs and professors. Also make sure you prioritize your mental and physical health while in school and work.
