Public Health

Program Spotlight: Public Health

Public Health

I personally chose Public Health because it seemed interesting and after watching the program review at the Ferris YouTube channel I learned a lot of interesting things about it. The first thing I found interesting was that public health affects everything you do from the minute you wake up to the minute you go to sleep. It affects everything you do because it the program is based upon the science of preventing illness and disease and promoting good health practices with the goal of improving everyone’s lives. I also liked it because it can apply to many different careers so I do not find a job in a certain field I can go work in a different one. Some of the different careers for Public Health are: educator or teacher, social worker, laboratory scientist, health economics. There is one aspect of Public Health that I love about any career field and that is helping people. That’s what sold me on this program, the fact that I may be able to save lives and teach people how to stay healthy is something I love. Really that’s the selling point for me, just the fact that I can help people.
