"Even without coming from any sort of health background, as nearly all of my fellow Corps members do, I am learning through my service that there’s a place for everyone in the public health puzzle. I am surprised and excited by the diverse backgrounds of the people who surround me at the Food bank each day. Individuals of all different fields— from agriculture to finance, food studies to data analysis, dietetics to public policy, and beyond— make up the large staff, and getting to know who they are and what role they play at the Food Bank has helped me better grasp the broad reach of the public health field."

"Throughout the first few months with the National Health Corps, I have been educated about many different topics within public health and social work. With the strengthening of my knowledge, I have been able to provide accurate and comprehensive information to my community members. I am excited to continue serving and finding ways to assist people around me because I am able to feel the wonders of empowerment every day at my site."

One of the pivotal moments for me during these interviews was speaking with the mother of a son we helped a few months earlier. He had recently moved to Philadelphia due to a fatal health concern and was having trouble getting health coverage. One of my colleagues was able to get him Medicaid in a matter of days which allowed him to get a surgery that saved his life.
