Former Student Health Ambassador

Lane College

“I am currently pursuing my Masters of Public Health degree from South University (Savannah, GA), and after I graduate (in 2021), I’m planning to attain a Doctorate of Public Health. My ultimate goal is to actively be on the frontlines helping to prevent the spread of the HIV/AIDS epidemic by becoming either a lobbyist , healthcare administrator, or infectious disease outreach educator."
