This is a special APHA Epidemiology Section featured episode, with Toby Levin, PhD, MPH. Be sure to listen to the full episode, as Dr. Levin discusses her journey from into public health and her work as an epidemiologist in the county health department. She talks about lab work, academia, and so much more.
Dr. Levin’s tips for students or recent graduates who are pursuing public health and may be interested in following a similar career path.
Never give up and don’t get discouraged. I took a long journey before I got to where I am.
Become a member of a public health professional association (e.g. CSTE and APHA) so that you can stay current with the public health arena.
Get involved in any way you can, even if it is just joining a conference call. You will find that you gain much from others.
