Member Highlight: Savanah Mueller

Savanah Mueller, MPH, has been staying involved in the Public Health field, despite the scarcity of public health programs and jobs in the rural area of Eastern North Carolina that she calls home. She volunteers at a free medical clinic and a women’s shelter. Her recent work on assembling a policy and procedure manual helped the free clinic gain approval for accreditation by the National Association of Free & Charitable Clinics. Her most rewarding work, though, is at the women’s shelter. “Our goal is to guide the women to becoming self sufficient and independent, finding employment and housing, and also often juggling various legal battles regarding their history of domestic violence,” Savanah said. “It has been incredible to put my educational background into practice.”
