Caroline's MPH Degree allowed her to

The Master's Program in Public Health is policy based, so my transition to the workplace post-graduation was seamless. The knowledge I gained has allowed me to work for the federal government to develop and administer new programs intended to provide high quality options to the uninsured under the Affordable Care Act. During the master's program, I was able to intern at the Florida Department of Health, which gave me a strong background in policy making. I spent a year with the Florida Senate Committee on Health Regulation, experiencing the political side of health policy. I learned so much from the public health program, not only from my professors, but also from the diverse backgrounds and experiences of my classmates.
