Epidemiology

What are your career goals?

My goal is to combine my passion for public health, otolaryngology, and scientific research into one career by becoming an academic otolaryngologist involved in clinical medicine, research, and international public health endeavors.  I hope to do so through epidemiologic study of international populations that have historically received less attention.

What sparked your interest in global health?

My interest in public health is a natural extension of an interest I have had in promoting the health of underprivileged populations. Through research and public health practice, I hope to simultaneously improve the health of patients on a much broader scale than is possible through clinical medicine alone. 

How do you see yourself making a difference in public health because of the Global Health Scholarship?

The Global Health Scholarship has allowed me to pursue an MPH, equipping me with the skills and knowledge necessary to investigate global disparities in the distribution of diseases in otolaryngology. I hope to ultimately make a positive impact on global health through developing initiatives aimed at addressing these disparities.

Who inspires you and why?

Depends on what I’ve been reading.  This week, Nelson Mandela. His leadership in South Africa was nothing less than stunning, ushering in what was truly a cultural revolution under remarkable circumstances.
