"Whenever I talk to people who are thinking about a career in public health, I tell them that getting my MPH from Rollins exponentially changed my earnings and my career projections. That’s because it gave me so much access to people, places, and organizations. It allowed me to have diverse experiences when I did not have a tremendous amount of prior public health experience."
