One of my favorite professional experiences

 A great experience at this time is taking the information that I have learned from teaching Anatomy and Physiology, Pathology, and Principles of Drugs, along with concepts from the MPH program, and sharing them with my students. Daily, there are new groundbreaking discoveries in medicine, nutrition, and health that affect both the U.S. and the world population. The rise of epidemics and other significant health events are not just out there in other countries, but are also happening closer to home. It is a wonderful experience to see students begin to understand that learning about disease is actually learning about medicine and how they can take that knowledge with them to care for their families and use it in their own career.
