Additional information
I am interested in sharing my experiences in traditional environmental public health professional roles, as well as some of the more non-traditional areas I have had the privilege of working in over my career. I am interested in developing meaningful learning experiences for students using simulation and case studies that reflect real-world issues faced by EPHPs.
