“I wouldn’t be where I am today without the guidance and support of the MPH faculty at Rollins. Interning at the Florida Department of Health helped prepare me for my current role, where I’m responsible for tracking hospital-acquired infections, investigating outbreaks of multi-drug-resistant organisms, and conducting research.”
