This episode is a little different, as I share discussion responses to public health topics in one of our community groups. Not only do I share the questions, responses, and comments from members of the group, I also provide my feedback as well. At the end, I summarize and present takeaway messages and tips for taking action.
Discussion topics covered:
Considering your public health coursework, what topic or course did you like the most, and what did you enjoy the least?
In a few words, briefly describe one public health problem, issue, or disease that is impacting your local area.
Health problems are evident around us
Great need for trained public health professionals
Jobs may not look the way you expect, or have the title you expect to see.
Take action steps toward getting involved and gaining experience.
Look for opportunities to help and serve within the problems around you.
Volunteer at first, and keep your mind and options open as you get more involved and gain experience.
Join the Facebook community to participate in these type of discussions in the future.
