Undergraduate Ambassador, Bachelor of Science in Health Promotion (BSHP)
My name is Sloane Sengson and I am from Flowery Branch, GA. I am a third year Health Promotion major with an emphasis in Health Services and a minor in Disaster Management. I am also on the Pre-PA track to hopefully fulfill my goal to become a Physician Assistant with a specialty in surgery and obstetrics. I joined the Student Ambassador Program here at the College of Public Health because I wanted to help other students realize that they can still study something that is of interest to them during their undergrad, such as Public Health, instead of Biology or Chemistry and still be on track to attend their post-graduate school of choice.
Some of my favorite classes that I have gotten to take within the major include Epidemiology, Health and Wellness, Healthcare Management, and Anatomy and Physiology. One awesome opportunity that I have gotten through my minor in Disaster Management is that I have been able to join the Medical Reserve Corps at UGA and have been volunteering to help with testing for COVID-19 across Athens. Being apart of the College of Public Health has given me a heightened advantage towards my medical studies by focusing on how to not only just care for the individual but also how to improve the health for the entire community. Let me know if you have any questions and Go Dawgs!
