Hi y'all! My name is Albana and I am 1/2 of the takeover team kicking off Mental Health Awareness Month. I just culminated my second year as an MPH student in Social and Behavioral Sciences @temple_cph My interests include--you guessed it--mental health along with nutrition, infectious diseases, and global health. One fun fact about me is that I am from and grew up in Northern Guatemala. This experience allowed me to gain an understanding of the need for health systems equipped to assess and address all facets of health. I look forward to interacting with you all! #ambassadortakeover #thisispublichealth

Recently I've been thinking and learning a lot about financial health for my Epidemiology capstone project. I've learned that improving the public's financial health can have great impacts on both mental and physical health by improving access to healthcare, lowering financial stress, and helping individuals secure their financial futures. My project is focusing on the impact that debt collection experience has on physical health, moderated by financial access as well as race. Working on this project has taught me that unfortunately health inequities are far-reaching and ever-present in many institutions in our society. This is why we study public health, so we can advocate for systemic changes! If I hadn't done this project, I may never have realized how important financial health is. What are aspects of public health that you think are under-appreciated? #AmbassadorTakeover

Hi everyone! My name is Hannah and I will be taking over the TIPH social media accounts for the week. I'll be talking about some of my public health and research interests, including climate change, Covid-19, infectious disease epidemiology, maternal and child health, outbreak response, and financial health as a social determinant of health. Looking forward to connecting with you all! #ambassadortakeover @sluhealthjustice
