  • Public health to me means protecting and improving the health of people and their community. To me, this work is achieved by promoting healthy lifestyles, preventing injury, and detecting, preventing and responding to infectious diseases. Public health also means finding ways to efficiently improve the standard of living of vulnerable populations, such as low-income populations or areas where access to healthcare is minimal.
  • Perhaps the most obvious reason why people work in healthcare is for the reward that comes with the job. Healthcare is not just a career – it's a calling. Those who work in healthcare often feel called to help others in need and a desire to make a difference or work in interesting places is the motivating factor.
