Hi everyone! My name is Anna, and I am a second-year MPH student with a concentration in community health and health behavior. I graduated from UB in the spring of 2021 with a BS in public health and a minor in nutrition. Some of my special interests include health communication, food insecurity and health education. If anyone has any questions about the program, UB or Buffalo in general, please reach out!

Hello everyone, my name is Chelsea Shuren, I am currently in my final year of the BS MPH 3 +2 program with a concentration in epidemiology! Currently I am doing my field training as a research assistant in UBMD’s Maternal and Child Health Lab; it’s been a really great experience so far. Looking to the future, I’m hoping to continue to pursue research and hopefully eventually going on to earning my PhD. Outside of being an ambassador for the School of Public Health and Health Professions, I also am a student assistant in the Office of Accessibility Resources on campus, enjoy cooking, reading and volunteering. I look forward to connecting with you all and answering any questions you have!
