Other Leadership Activities: I am also a member of the Illinois Public Health Association Membership Committee

Personal Statement about APHA-SA: The APHA Student Assembly has been a huge part of my public health schooling experience. Being on the board has allowed me to create many contacts and let me have the chance to let my voice heard as a student. It is fun and exciting to be able to work with students from across the country that all have similar thoughts and opinions as my own regarding public health.
