Makeda Griffin

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

My name is Makeda Griffine and I am a fourth year Health Promotion major with an emphasis in Health Services. After I graduate, I am taking a gap year where I plan to get my MA certification and work as a MA until I start medical school. The College of Public Health has really helped me focus in on what I want to do with my career and beyond. I want to go to medical school and obtain my MD/MPH. I hope by obtaining my MPH, I will be able to advocate and travel to promote health and help build healthy communities. Through all of the classes I have taken so far through the college, I think they have successfully prepared me for what I want to do in the future.
