Black Public Health Student Network, With Alexis Hooper and Toni Junious
This particular episode will be a little different than my typical interviews, because it is more student-focused rather than from the perspective of a career professional. I'm excited to shake things up a bit and hopefully shine some light on the positive activities that my guests are part of, in hopes of it serving as inspiration for other students and schools of public health as well. You’ll meet Alexis Hooper and Toni Junious of the Black Public Health Student Network at George Washington University, Milken Institute School Of Public Health.
