"My goal as part of the Global Environmental Health program is to focus on maternal and child health, specifically how environmental exposures effect fetal and child development and how to effectively implement and assess maternal and child health programs. The field of public health is interdisciplinary in nature and Rollins School of Public Health exemplifies this by facilitating multidepartment collaboration between students and professors. The technical and social skills I have already gained and will continue to improve upon during my two years at Rollins will bring me closer to my goal of implementing projects in maternal public health."
