Erin Brooks

Undergraduate Ambassador

Undergraduate Ambassador, Bachelor of Science in Health Promotion (BSHP)

My name is Erin from Fayetteville, and I am a fourth year Health Promotion major with an emphasis in behavioral medicine and a Spanish minor. I have always had an interest in the medical field, but as I grew older, I began to recognize the need for influencing healthcare on a larger scale. My specific interests include minority and women’s health, especially maternal health. The College of Public Health has offered me relevant field, research, and writing experience through its variety of courses offered. The College has also allowed me to explore several possibilities for a career in public health and provided invaluable knowledge on my journey to enhancing community health locally, nationally, and globally. My goal is to increase access to healthcare and health equity for minority communities, and I will spend my career advocating for the well-being of communities of color and addressing the medical issues facing Black women.
