  • Azmo Dol, MPH, 2014

    Online school was to me the hardest thing that I would decide to do. However it turned out to be the best thing that I have done in my life. The faculty said ‘We understand you have children, work and these other obligations… how can we work together? Passion and commitment is what brought you here and we are here to push and get you through.

  • Kristen Provencher, MPH, 2013

    The Public Health major at UNE presented me with a life changing opportunity during the summer of 2012. I traveled to Ghana, West Africa with about 20 people from the UNE community and beyond. We set up a health clinic and served over 100 people in and around the twin cities of Sekondi and Takoradi. The trip inspired a strong interest in global health and health inequities across the globe.

  • Thomas F. Tropea, DO, MPH, 2011

    The online MPH program allows me to be able to step out of my role as a physician-in-training, and begin thinking about health from a population perspective. In pursuing a concurrent DO/MPH I feel I will be better prepared to face the challenges of a career in medicine equipped with the tools necessary to think more broadly and abstractly about health concerns.
