Undergraduate Ambassador, Bachelor of Science in Environmental Health (BSEH)
My name is Tiffany Mukundi and I am a third year Environmental Health Science major from Lithia Springs, Georgia. Currently, I am a research assistant for the Health and Development Lab and I serve on the College of Public Health’s Diversity Equity and Inclusion Board as the undergraduate representative. I chose Environmental Health Science because I was looking for a major that complimented my purpose in life. As a first generation student, my primary goal is to give back to my country.
By becoming a primary care physician, I plan on creating and working at non-profit clinics in Kenya and other African developing countries. As a requirement for the major, Health Promotion and Health Policy and Management courses have given me additional insight into how to create, organize, and implement programs for the clinics. Specifically, my major will help me understand and improve other factors of healthcare that go unnoticed. Environmental Health Science has helped me realize that healthcare providers are the first step, but home environments are crucial to improving quality of life. If you have any questions, please reach out to me. I am more than happy to help in any way I can.
