Emily Davenport (MPH ’17)
While still a student, she helped strengthen the relationship between FIU and CDC by sharing her experience with her fellow students, sitting on a fellowship panel and hiring CDC interns from FIU’s student body. Now that she’s an FIU alumna, she makes a point to keep in touch with her professors and hopes to inspire other young professionals as a guest speaker.
Emily says the MPH program gave her the flexibility and the freedom to bolster her education, while working full-time for a federal agency. She incorporated her existing professional experience into her academic coursework, and in turn, took the skills she was learning in the classroom to her job every day.
