Program: Social Inequities and Health, Master of Public Health
Hi, I'm Agnetha. Before coming to SFU for the MPH program, I completed a BSc in Cell Biology and Genetics with Life Science Co-op as well as an MSc in Experimental Medicine at UBC. Throughout these degrees, I always found myself thinking of the upstream social determinants of health and the ways in which they influenced health. Following this interest led me to the field of Public Health.
When considering a MPH program, I knew I wanted to attend a University that had an accredited program. Additionally, I thought about how I could pursue my interest in learning more about the social determinant of health, while delving into other areas of public health including environmental and global health. This is what made SFU's MPH program the best fit for me and I hope for you as well! If you feel unsure about what's ahead - remember, you aren't alone! And don't hesitate to ask questions.
