Sarah Nguyentran, MPH, followed her time at the University of Florida with a fellowship with the CDC Midwest Center of Excellence for Vector-Borne Disease, under the mentorship of Dr. Jean Tsao of of Michigan State University, investigating the presence of blacklegged ticks and the pathogens they harbor. “During my MPH education, I vividly remember working on a project for my Spatial Epidemiology course with data from Dr. Sarah McKune’s Un Enfant, Un Oeuf, Par Jour research,” Sarah recalled. “[…] Through this project, I gleaned knowledge on the massive amounts of international teamwork required and on the difficult process of conducting health interventions, which I think will prepare me for future interests in working in global health.”
