Emily Bossung Hall, BSPH'18

Community Outreach Associate, Indiana University Health

Emily was admitted to IUPUI with interest in the imaging program. She quickly learned that it was not for her after her first semester. After numerous meetings with her advisor, Martha, she mentioned meeting with Leah at the School of Public Health. After taking Intro to Public Health with Professor Duszynski, it all started to make sense. The public health field is where she was meant to make an impact in and the rest is history!
