Hi everyone! My name is Bryce and I am a second-year MPH student in the Department of Epidemiology at Saint Louis University College for Public Health and Social Justice (@sluhealthjustice @slu_official).

Public health has given me more than just a higher purpose for the community but has led me to cross paths with incredible colleagues, friends, and countless of memories on and off the work clock. With that being said, I am so ecstatic to be a part of this year’s TIPH Ambassador Program and to be taking over the #thisispublichealth social media pages this week. I will be covering a range of public health topics including how epidemiology and geospatial sciences intersect in addressing various health problems, my life as a graduate student, researcher, and more! It’s going to be an amazing week, so I encourage you all to turn our notifications on so you won’t miss a thing!

Hi everyone!

My name is Savannah but most folks call me Savi. I am a 3rd year PhD student in the Department of Mental Health at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health ( @johnshopkinssph ). I am also a pre-doctoral trainee in the Drug Dependence Epidemiology Training Program (DDET) funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) ( @nihgov ). As a PhD student I have committed my research to working with adolescents in finding novel approaches to monitor and prevent substance use early in life, with particular interest in social media platforms & machine learning.

I will be taking over the TIPH page this week to raise awareness around drug overdose and kick off Recovery Month , which is every September. I hope that each day I can share a little bit about what it means to be living with a substance use disorder (SUD) and debunk the myths around recovery and substance use all together. I firmly believe that by ending the stigma around substance use and those who use drugs, we can more effectively treat and serve those living with SUD along with other mental disorders. Together we can #breakthestigma 💪

Welcome to day 5 of my takeover! On today’s story, Kathy shares about her goal to build a health workforce that is representative of the diverse population it serves. Kathy also shares what she does through her role as the coordinator for the UCLA Public Health Scholars Program (@uclaphscholars). In 2019, I participated in the program and can attest to the benefits of participating in a program that includes an internship with a public health focused organization, professional development workshops and panels, and a stipend! The memories and friends (pictured above) I made through the program deeply influenced my career direction. To learn more about the program visit

Today we recognize Juneteenth and celebrate that the United States has commemorated the end of slavery by designating Juneteenth, or June 19th, the 12th federal holiday. 

“Our federal holidays are purposely few in number and recognize the most important milestones,” said Rep. Carolyn Maloney, D-N.Y. “I cannot think of a more important milestone to commemorate than the end of slavery in the United States.” 

Juneteenth commemorates June 19, 1865, when Union soldiers brought the news of freedom to enslaved Black people in Galveston, Texas —  two years after President Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation and about two months after the end of the Civil War.

🏳️‍🌈 This is Public Health Ambassador Aneeka R. @tulane_sphtm shares 

"What does pride mean to me?": 

"Celebrating and continuing the fight for respect, dignity, and love for all.
Pride represents an opportunity to recognize and celebrate joy and hope for the LGBTQIA+ community, while acknowledging those who have fought and continue to fight for our rights and freedoms. It brings very important conversations to the forefront, such as the disproportionate burden of mental health challenges faced by members of the LGBTQIA+ community, along with the importance of recognizing intersectionality in this work. Pride is simultaneously a moment of great celebration and a sobering reminder of the many barriers that still exist for LGBTQIA+ folks. For me, it’s a call to action, renewing my conviction to continually fight for my community."
