“Prevention is better than cure”
I know it’s a cliché but these above words have always been a key point behind my graduation learning. It has helped me frame my targets and reach the goals of my career so far. I have been so blessed to be a part of health education and medicine studies supervised by people with good values and principles. They have supported me in accomplishing the goals I have set forth.
I have been a topper in school as well as in college. In school, I was taught to be inquisitive, and to probe beyond the obvious solutions, to gain a deeper understanding of concepts. Biology and
Mathematics were my favorite subjects as I was fortunate to have teachers who motivated me by drawing parallels between worlds …show more content…
I often wonder when people talk of healthcare pressing issue, I wish they could grasp what it means, what crushing poverty entails, and even what an underdeveloped or a developing nation looks like.

My first true introduction to the public health arena came in a class offered through subject in the eighth semester in my University. As I learned about contemporary health issues from my teachers, I was intrigued to involve myself more with this arena. I saw the range of problems that public health professionals were trying to solve in innovative ways.

What if abandoning unnecessary procedures saved thousands of dollars, which then allowed a hospital to treat other patients needing care? What if every person was guaranteed care and that care was good? I would like to find answers for these questions during my career as a public health graduate student and professional. I am most excited
