What does public health mean to you?

Public health is the monitoring, educating and caring for the health of the general public as a whole.

Why did you choose to study Public Health at WVU?

I chose the Public Health program at WVU because I love the educational opportunities within the School of Public Health, and I love that I can use my degree to help my peers in other programs. The professors make learning the material intriguing, which makes me want to teach others about how we can work together to be a healthier population.

Have any particular faculty members made an impact on you while at WVU?

Dr. Elizabeth Claydon is very caring about her students. She makes sure material is understandable, answers all questions and follows up with students when needed.

What would you tell future students about WVU and the School of Public Health?

The School of Public Health at WVU is a very welcoming place. We are all here to learn how to help others, in every different way. We are devoted to the health of the public and wish to one day make our own difference in the world.

What advice would you give to your freshman self?

I would tell myself to not stress so much. It will all be okay. School gets tough, but you’re tougher. (Also, keep up with homework.)

What do you like about being a School of Public Health ambassador?

Being an ambassador for the School of Public Health has been such an amazing opportunity. Being able to represent a great school with a great goal is the best part.
