Master of Public Health students take learning experiences abroad

Three Master of Public Health (MPH) students are taking their education abroad this summer, as they complete their 12-week practicums for the program. All three received funding through the Western International Global Opportunities Awards, which provide $1,000 scholarships for international learning.

Jyllian Lippmann is completing her practicum with the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) in Bridgetown, Barbados. She is working with the Emergency Preparedness and Disaster Relief Department.

Safiyya Nazarali is working in Uganda with the School of Public Health in Uganda.

Jenna Paulson is working with the Institute of Public Health in Bangalore, India.

The students will be returning from their international practicums in August.
