How will you change the world from here?

I knew deep inside that I could never change the world if I didn’t embrace my passion for the Earth and my desire to help others. Through the MPH Policy and Leadership program, USF gave me the freedom to find my niche in the intersection where climate change, health, and emergency management meet."
