Why public health?
With the focus in health care shifting from treatment to prevention, public health is a growing field that is both meaningful and rewarding. I was also drawn to the multidisciplinary nature of the field and the ability to make an impact on a large scale.

Why Chose Rutgers School of Public Health
New Jersey is one of the most culturally and economically diverse states in the country, so it is a great place to study public health and put health promotion programs into practice. I knew that this area would provide me with fieldwork and research opportunities, especially given the school’s close relationship with various health care organizations, like the Cancer Institute of New Jersey, Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital, and countless other local organizations and community centers.
