Rollins Student Ambassadors Co-Leaders 2018-2019
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 first-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 Georgia Department of Public 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 first-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. Currently, I’m working as a Research Assistant at the CDC in the Chronic Viral Diseases Branch studying Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Outside of Rollins, I volunteer in the Arts in Health program at Winship Cancer Institute, and I love exploring the city with my friends. Feel free to reach out to me if you ever have any questions about Rollins, research, or Atlanta!
