The National Health Corps offers such a great opportunity to make a positive impact on and serve the local community.

From my year of service, I hope to gain more experience working in the field of public health and learn how to connect with people in underserved communities in order to serve them better and make a positive impact. I also hope to make connections with other professionals in the public health and social work fields.
What are you most looking forward to during your service term?
I am most looking forward to making a positive impact on the community I serve. I am also looking forward to learning more about the fields of public health and social work through my service and also bonding with the other members of the Pittsburgh cohort.
