Further study provides students with the knowledge and skills needed to identify evidence-based techniques for disease prevention and promotion of health, both at home and from a global perspective.</p>\r\n<h3>Areas of Emphasis</h3>\r\n<p>In addition to the core requirements for the major, students also focus their education by selecting an area of emphasis.</p>\r\n<p>In the <strong>Public Health Sciences area of emphasis</strong>, students learn to recognize how environmental and occupational factors impact the health status of individuals and populations and to apply skills in biostatistical and epidemiologic methods in public health practice and research.</p>\r\n<p>In the <strong>Community and Population Health area of emphasis</strong>, students learn to recognize how social and behavioral factors impact the health status of individuals and populations and to identify appropriate theories, methods, strategies and policies to address the public health needs of communities and populations. This also prepares students to sit for the Community Health Education Certification (CHES) exam.</p>\r\n<p>The<strong class=\"u-wvu-blue\"> Patient Navigation area of emphasis</strong> p<span>repares students to become members of healthcare teams that help individuals overcome barriers to quality care, including access, literacy, transportation and more. Patient Navigators (PNs) assist individuals in reducing and eliminating barriers to health care access and in negotiating complex health delivery systems.</span></p>\r\n<h3><span>Field Placement and Community Service</span></h3>\r\n<p>All students complete <a data-udi=\"umb://document/c4208d37b5c747eebb4ac5c377104e8c\" href=\"/students/experiential-learning/\" title=\"Hands-On Learning\">field placement</a> and capstone experiences as their culminating coursework. During their senior year, every undergraduate student is required to complete 75 hours of applied field placement experience in a local or regional agency or institution where they can put their classroom lessons to work. Students in the Patient Navigation area of emphasis will work with health-related agencies experiencing care coordination with patients and providers. All students engage with community partners, gain experience in the workplace and demonstrate acquisition of competencies.</p>\r\n<p><span>In addition to the field placements, all undergraduate students are required to complete a minimum 25 hours of community service before the start of their senior year, documented through <a href=\"https://iserve.wvu.edu/\">iServe</a> in the WVU Office of Service and Learning. Getting involved in the <a href=\"http://publichealth.wvu.edu/saph/\">Student Association of Public Health</a> is also a great way to get connected to service opportunities.</span></p>\r\n<p><span><a

I will always remember the countless friends and relationships that I have established over just four short years.

When did you know that you wanted to study public health?

Although I simply gave public health a try after leaving the exercise physiology program, I knew that I wanted to study public health because of the variety of fields that can be explored by studying this major. This provided me with a broader area of emphasis where I could narrow my focuses on what I was good at.

What is public health?

To me, public health can be described as prevention. The best analogy that I have learned has been to think of standing by a river. While you watch individuals float down that have struggled upstream with either injury or illness. The public health field would travel upstream to determine what issues or problems are present to prevent further injury, whereas, other healthcare-related fields would be downstream assisting in caring for these individuals. It is important to me because my generation is the future of our healthcare system. I want to be a runner in its progressing development and change.

What is a moment you realized public health was the right fit for you?

The moment I realized that public health was right for me was in the PUBH 202 Social Determinants of Health class. This happened to be the first chance to study what makes up health statuses and how to determine the outcomes that can occur.

Why did you choose WVU for your education?

West Virginia has been home my whole life and I have wanted nothing more than to attend WVU for my education and help the communities that I grew up around.

Have you had any particular members of the faculty or staff who made an impact on you while studying at WVU?

Many professors have made an impact on my education while attending. To highlight the most influential ones would be Lindsay Allen, Lauri Andress, Stephen Davis, Scot Mclntosh and Robert Bossarte. These professors have given me expert advice and skills to equip me in a leadership role in which I hope to hold someday. Having mentors by some of the greatest minds in the public health field has given me the best chance to succeed within my future career.

What are some unique or interesting experiences you’ve had during your time at WVU?

The most unique experience that I had was joining the WVU Cheerleading Team my sophomore year. Never in my life would I have imagined myself as being a cheerleader, but this opportunity has been like no other. All I can say is that it was an honor representing the best Big 12 and college team in the nation.

Tell us about your field placement experience.

My field experience placement has been working with Healthy Harrison. As an intern for this organization, I have had the opportunity to interview and meet various people from their communities and learn about their healthy habits and how it contributes to their lifestyle. I have participated in promoting their stories, along with developing recipes, on Healthy Harrison’s social media pages. I have learned the power of what small communities can have and the inspiration they can bring when determination is applied to developing an initiative of good health practices.

What do you want to do after graduation?

I want to attend a Master of Health Administration program, particularly at WVU. My ultimate career goal would be to work my way up in a hospital's administration to become their Chief Operation Officer.

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

I would tell prospective students to choose WVU because of the experience of having a large school setting with a tight-knit community within your major. This applies to the School of Public Health because it allows you to have personal connections with peers and professors to receive the best educational experience possible.

What advice would you give to your freshman self?

    1. Never pass up on extra credit when given because it could make the difference between an A or B letter grade.
    2. Do not fantasize too long about what your dream career could be if the grades are not there to support it; learn what you are good at and follow it.

What will you always remember from your time at WVU?

I will always remember the countless friends and relationships that I have established over just four short years.

What do you think is the best tradition at WVU?

The best tradition at WVU is singing Country Roads after any sports-related win. It provides a special feeling to put your arms around your Mountaineer family and sing along as you celebrate.

Why should someone choose to study public health?

Anyone who is interested in a career in healthcare should choose public health because of the numerous opportunities and fields that can be explored by studying this major. Without a doubt, anyone can find a way to take interest in learning about public health by challenging their mind in preventative intervention strategies, developing influential change and promoting healthier living.

What are you looking forward to most after graduation?

I am most looking forward to being able to apply my skills and knowledge into the workforce and establishing a career for myself.

Is there something people would be surprised to learn about you?

Although I consider myself to be a connoisseur of dairy foods, especially ice cream, I am actually lactose intolerant.

Let’s go.
