STUDENT SPOTLIGHT: Olivia Attalla (MPH Candidate 2017): Olivia hails from Egypt, she says, “I chose public health because I wanted to be a part of a network of professionals who prevent harmful health outcomes through prevention. I chose The University of Miami because of its diversity and its proximity to Latin America. I am planning to work on my Capstone Project this summer in a developing country by conducting research on HIV/AIDS prevention. I plan to perform a needs assessment in an underserved community with the goal to create awareness and help patients who do not have access to health care. The program has given me the tools and experience needed to successfully complete my project. The University of Miami is like one big family; no matter where you come from you feel supported and welcomed by the entire University. The Department of Public Health Sciences gave me the opportunity to meet great professors and collaborate in research on global health, epidemiology, and disease prevention. If you want to make an impact in global health, obtaining an MPH degree at The University of Miami is the best place to start” Go Canes!

STUDENT SPOTLIGHT: Xeniamaria Rodriguez (MSPH Candidate 2017): Xenia is from Miami, FL. However, her parents are Panamanian and Nicaraguan and she maintains strong ties to both countries. Chronic Disease prevention is her primary public health interest, specifically cardiovascular disease and cancer preventative behaviors. Chronic illness disproportionately affects minority communities and also has become one of the leading causes of death in the United States today. Her concentration is in Epidemiology. Her favorite part about living in Miami is the diversity of the city, where you can get a taste of every part of Latin America and the Caribbean. UM also has great diversity and ties to serve the communities surrounding it, which was very important to her. Ultimately, Xenia came to UM because of the program’s interdisciplinary curriculum, which allowed her to explore a variety of research opportunities. Xenia says, "There are so many ways to give back to the community through public health, but it is important to not only educate yourself, but to gain hands on experience." Go Canes!
