This episode features a member of the APHA Epi section.
My guest is Dr. Sreelekha Prakash.
She shares her journey into public health with a global health prospective.
She started her career as a medical doctor, specifically an emergency clinician, treating patients in India. She describes how that experience created an opportunity for research and laid the foundation for her journey into public health and her career in academics and research here in the US, where she serves as a Health Sciences Faculty member pursuing research of health-related issues.
Be sure to listen all the way through, because she gives some great career advice toward the end.
