    Before entering the program:

    Before entering the program, I was finishing my bachelors degree and working with my research lab to send COVID-19 test kits to areas in need.

    Why did you choose public health?

    I knew I wanted to go into healthcare administration during my senior year of undergrad, and wanted to create an impact on healthcare that required a different unique set of skills. These skills were all related to public health and understanding the health needs of a community, so I applied to MPH programs!

    Why did you choose MEZCOPH?

    MEZCOPH is a wonderful program that allows me to concentrate in Health Services Administration and I have family members who are alumni of MEZCOPH! It is also close to home which is important to me during the pandemic.
