Managing the Rollins Student Ambassadors program are two ambassador leaders who support, advise, and train.
Hey everyone! My name is Meghan Herring and I am a second-year global epidemiology MPH student. I am also in the humanitarian emergencies certificate program. I am originally from Minnesota, then moved out to the northeast for undergrad at Boston College. I studied biology and medical humanities at BC and loved exploring Boston! After graduation I moved to Honduras where I volunteered at a home for children through an organization called Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos. While in Honduras, I worked as a patient coordinator at a free ambulatory surgery center and fell in love with public health. When looking at MPH programs, I was blown away by all of the opportunities and connections offered at Rollins both domestic and international. I was excited about exploring a new part of the country and haven’t been disappointed. I am currently working at the Center for Disease Control and Prevention in the Office of One Health, am a member of Rollins’ Student Outbreak and Response team, and regular attendee of the Vaccine Dinner Club. When I am not studying or trying to solve the worlds many problems, I love exploring Atlanta, playing tennis, cooking and reading romance novels! I am quite chatty and would be happy to talk more about Rollins, so feel free to email me with any questions!
Hi everyone! My name is Amber and I’m a second-year Epidemiology MPH student in the Mental Health certificate program. I was born and raised in Ohio, and I attended The Ohio State University (Go Bucks!!) for my undergraduate career. Directly after I graduated with a degree Environmental Public Health, I started here at Rollins. A few of the reasons why I chose Rollins were to be challenged and interested in my classes, to pursue research, and to experience the city of Atlanta. My thesis is on the intersection of mental health and women’s health. I have also been working as a Research Assistant at the CDC in the Chronic Viral Diseases Branch studying Chronic Fatigue Syndrome for over a year. Outside of Rollins, I love exploring the city with friends and painting. Feel free to reach out to me if you ever have any questions about Rollins, research, or Atlanta!
