Lorem ipsum

Alumna of bachelor's program hooked on public health

Josie Lee, BS ’20

In high school Josie Lee was surprised by the lack of mental health resources and support at her high school. When she began her freshman year of college, she knew she wanted to improve the system. It wasn't until she took her first public health course at the University of Michigan that she knew how she could change the system.

Sidonie Kilpatrick

Alumna's research focuses on how childhood impacts mental health, chronic disease outcomes

Sidonie Kilpatrick

Sidonie Kilpatrick, MPH ’20, did not follow a family member’s path into the healthcare profession. She did not receive inspiration from a popular television series that showed healthcare workers in heroic roles, nor did her high school classes in related subjects provide the illumination that would send her on to study and work on critical matters of public health. Instead, she lived it.
