How long have you been a member of ENCompass?

I have been a member of ENCompass for about a year now.

What public health issue are you most passionate about?

I would say I am most passionate about health care and health insurance, specifically the health outcomes of other countries with single payer systems or national health insurance. 

In what way has ENCompass impacted you?

When I joined ENCompass I was mostly interested in international health, but actively working in the community and seeing how many problems exist just within a five-mile radius has made me realize I am more interested in domestic health.

I am also a student manager at a campus coffee shop and I just recently became an HIV/STI counselor. 

What are your future plans?

I am considering epidemiology, but to be honest, I'm not sure what my future plans are.
