What did you do this summer?
I spent the summer at the University of Michigan School of Public Health as part of the Future Public Health Leaders Program. This program encourages minority students to work in community public health and health disparities. One of the last weeks of summer, I travelled to Atlanta where I got to listen to lectures from various public health professionals.
What are you involved in?
Newcomb Scholars, Mortar Board, Alpha Lambda Delta, and I am also starting a new organization called GLAM, which stands for Global Health Leaders Across Multicultural Women.
What are your goals for the upcoming school year?
Mostly, I would like get my organization, GLAM, up and running and successful in fulfilling our mission of increasing awareness of minority women health issues and also increasing leadership skills of women who would like to work in public health.
A non-profit organization
