I truly appreciated how much the Public Health & Community Health Education professors cared about our success in the program and our overall well-being. There was never a moment where I did not feel valued in the program.

The education, guidance and support of the Public Health & Community Health Education Program made me into the public health professional I am now. I use the skills I learned in the program (and the grad program) every single day in my job. It's invaluable!

UWL programs, like the McNair Scholars Program, made me realize so many things I’m interested in. I can develop more knowledge and enjoy doing research.

Pursuing a major in Public Health & Community Health Education has given me opportunities to advocate and work on policy development at a local and national level. From Eta Sigma Gamma meetings to summits in Washington D.C., I was able to continuously prepare for my future career in public health.

Since graduating in 2019, I’ve worked for two Wisconsin health organizations, both stating they hired me because I graduated from the UWL Public Health & Community Health Education Program! When our professors say they have a public health undergraduate program like no other, they are absolutely right.

The professors were my strong, supportive mentors that helped me create a foundation for the work I do today in the field. Their genuine passion for the field created a unique sense of appreciation for the work that is needed now more than ever.

The professors who make up this program are among the most dedicated individuals I’ve ever had the opportunity to work with. Not only do they provide high-quality education, they provide their students with opportunities for applied learning to see how public health works from theory to practice at all levels.
