Findings Fall 2022
In this issue of Findings, we learn about Oksana Fedorak, a native of Ukraine and Michigan Public Health student. She discusses the courageous and important work she’s doing to address mental health care in her home country as a result of the Russian invasion, as well as combat human trafficking. As Fedorak reflects on her work with a health and human rights organization, she says, “If there is one thing I will take away from my time in public health, it is this: More than governments or institutions, it is the people who will show you the way.” Public health is about listening, learning and working in partnership with communities to come up with the solutions that are best for their people. Public health is a team sport, and we do better when we work together. Throughout this issue of Findings, you’ll read stories that highlight this central value of our field at the state, national and global levels.
Findings is the alumni magazine of the University of Michigan School of Public Health and is published twice each year.
