Personal Statement: 

I earned my doctorate from Tulane University School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine. I have been involved in developing health education policy and programs in the areas malaria control, maternal/child health, and water and sanitation for both domestic and international agencies such as CARE International, UNICEF, and various Ministries of Health. I have also presented papers and posters at numerous domestic and international conferences and has published in many peer reviewed journals. I  believe in the concept of  theory -practice interaction and as such encourage students to undertake experiential learning experiences both domestically and internationally.
