I currently work as a gender, racial, and health specialist at the Caribbean Disaster Management Agency( as a Fulbrighter). I will be attending law school for a Juris Doctors in fall 2022


I think the program allows students to venture into different fields of public health and that’s how I found out that I really enjoy doing disaster management! For that I’m really appreciative of the global health program and definitely want them to continue allowing people to explore different pathways.


At an National Taiwan University I explore the intersectionality between global health and disaster management. I wanted to apply the knowledge gained during my master degree to other disenfranchised communities in the Caribbean.

Country: Haiti


I am currently a Medical Doctor and manager of the nutrition programme in Moissala, Chad for Doctors Without Borders (MSF, France)


In Global Health Program, Aal the classes we took were helpful, really like our trip to Japan and the SHE class, and our indigenous class and trip. I suggest we have more statistics and epidemiology class (more hours ).


The earthquake in 2010 in my country made me realized that I needed to be helpful for the people in my country and worldwide for that I dedicated myself to medicine. During my study at NTU GHP I applied for the job at Doctors Without Borders to work in humanitarian emergencies and help communities in need. The GHP program made me realize I can do more and I need to do more.

I am the health program associate in Epidemiology Dept Alaska state health dept. I process COVID-19 data and provide COVID-19 testing data analytics to improve the quality of covid data. I plan to pursue a PhD in Epidemiology in the future.


I applied to 3 positions after graduation, and took the first job that I was offered. I am currently looking for a more challenging position in the field of Epidemiology but I am happy that I've gotten a job in the field I want to pursue. I believe with the masters degree I received from GHP will allow me to pursue higher positions and a PhD program in the future.
