Why choose public health/What’s awesome about Public Health?

My four years of high I dedicated many hours of community service working with the Public Health team in the Mariposa Community Health center. I went through a training where I became certified as a teen health facilitator. Seeing how my supervisor engaged in so many activities convinced me that Public Health is a very broad field where I could easily find what I am best at doing. The college of Public health is absolutely amazing, any student coming in from a different health career is sure to find a new career through public health.
