Impact Lives

Janet Guardia

Benedictine’s program is unique in that it offers students the opportunity and exposure to learn from highly qualified professors and instructors who are experienced in their field. The professors I’ve interacted with during each course were willing and available to offer their expertise and knowledge on their particular subject matter. Additionally, the courses I have taken have helped me expand my knowledge base of how human behavior and social issues are intertwined and what steps can be made to improve health issues on an individual basis but can make a difference as well at a local level or globally. The program has helped me in my current job by teaching me more on the fundamentals of surveillance and background epidemiology of outbreaks and how to collect and analyze data that can be used in current outbreak events.
