The Ph.D. Public Affairs program adequately equipped me with a diverse skillset that I use in my current position to conduct research and to identify research opportunities in my current university. Through collaborative efforts with my colleagues, the impact of my research is to change current healthcare policies to minimize healthcare disparities across different population groups. Lastly, the mentorship I received in the program has been invaluable in my career development, as a professor and researcher. I make a conscious effort to mentor and provide guidance to all of my students.
