For me, public health and social justice are intertwined. After graduating with a degree as a physician’s assistant, I volunteered for a year working in a clinic in rural Honduras. That experience converted me to public health with a focus on global health and health promotion, and I never looked back. I have worked in health education and health promotion both in Latin America (10 years) and with immigrant and refugee populations in the Chicago area for over 25 years.
