Motivating you to rise up, take action, and advance toward your public health career goals means that we can collectively impact public health around the world. That is why I’m sharing insights, as well as providing tools and resources to help as many of you as I can. The five tips that I discuss in this episode will really help you move forward. Below are some highlights, but please be sure to listen to the full episode.
Highlights from this episode:
Become aware of what you’re doing well, and where you need to improve; then decide what you need to continue doing (and what you need to discontinue).
Sometimes things need to be heard more than once, and perhaps in more ways than one.
Follow, connect, and commit to sources that inform, education, inspire you to action and help you reach your career goals.
Action is required.
No more excuses.
