Making Connections Online and In-Person

Sometimes it can be challenging to connect with fellow students in an online program. Master of Public Health (MPH) student Liz McCormick and Olivia Thomas (MPH '23) both decided to connect with their peers as quickly as they could. Since meeting virtually in their first class together, the pair navigated through the MPH program knowing they had each other’s back. Liz and Olivia talk about their public health interests, give advice to students, and more in this Q&A.
