Environmental Health, April 2018
The Public Health Zine (PHZ) presents an evidence-based, comprehensive snapshot of pressing campus health issues through a monthly theme. We are a publication dedicated to creating a campus-wide conversation around student health and wellness.
View it here. This month’s theme explores non-Western perspectives on mental health, as these are often underrepresented, misunderstood, and do not match with adequate resources and support. Our collection includes personal anecdotes, including poetry and design, as well as evidence-based pieces.
Worried about graduation? Excited to see all of the opportunities our alumni take part in? Need to assure your parents that this is a great major/minor choice? Check back here for a spotlight on different alumni in public health (or non-public health) careers!

Your graduation year: 2016
What you do now: Administrator, Baseball Assistance Team for Major League Baseball
Why did you major in public health? I wanted a career that allowed me to help others. Public health was a natural fit because of its wide-reaching impact.
What’s one thing you wish you had known for each year of undergrad?
Freshman: Ease into your first year of college! Don’t stress yourself out by trying to do everything.
Sophomore: Everyone is going through something. There’s no shame in asking for help when you need it.
Junior: Build your network early. Most will be willing to help because you’re a student. (LinkedIn is your friend!)
Senior: Make a bucket list and cross off every item! You won’t remember the tests you took, but you will remember moments with your best friends.
Were there any internships, organizations, or classes that helped you get to your current job? Starting my sports career with Tulane athletics was instrumental. It gave me Division I experience in an intimate environment. That position perfectly prepared me for an internship with the New Orleans Baby Cakes. Whether you pursue a career in public health or another industry, use your local resources!
Favorite restaurant in New Orleans? Surrey’s! I love their Bananas Foster French Toast.
Any parting advice? Lots of BSPH students continue on to graduate school. If you prefer to enter the workforce after graduation, that’s okay! Pursue your passions and you’ll be happier in the end.
