"The Carroll College Public Health professors and rigorous curriculum provided me the confidence and ability to forge new paths and accept a number of different opportunities. I am thankful for my time with inspired professors and colleagues who challenged my idea of what a typical job path should be. With thoughtful guidance, I was able to try health education, advocacy and research-based career tracks before identifying that management and strategy for health organizations would be the perfect combination of my talents and interest. Without Carroll and the endless possibilities the school provides through the classrooms, student groups, progressional engagement and more, I wouldn’t find myself with a graduate degree and ready to embark on my next career with UNC Health’s Chapel Hill Medical Center."
