    What prompted you to pursue your field?

    Lessons/values learned at Loyola led me to the Peace Corps and public health.

    What does your department's focus mean to you?

    Public health is health at the community level, more of prevention and early detection than personal care.

    Why is this area of study important at this point in time?

    Global health is pivotal now at protecting health and well-being of the entire population of the world, particularly those most vulnerable.

    What "called" you to/attracted you to Loyola?

    Returning to teach at the school where I earned my BS and had my personal values challenged to pursue social justice.
