Hey y’all! My name is Carter McCormick and I am a second-year Global Health student in the Infectious Disease concentration. Although I grew up in Gainesville, Florida
(Go Gators!), I am a proud alumnus of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (Go Heels!), where I completed a BA in Public Policy, focusing on US and Global Health Policy, and Exercise and Sport Science. Following graduation, I worked in Fraternity and Sorority Life at the national level for a year before starting my MPH. I chose Rollins for a plethora of reasons, but two in particular are the school’s location in one of the Public Health capitals of the world and the Rollins Earn and Learn (REAL) job program, which truly sets Rollins apart from other schools of public health. My public health interest primarily revolve around Neglected Tropical Diseases, Pharmaceuticals, Mass Drug Administrations, and physical activity. Here at Rollins, I served on the executive boards of the Emory Global Health Organization, Rollins Health Collaborative, and Jewish Students in Public Health, and the Diversity and Inclusion Committee. I also have had a REAL job at a nonprofit doing consumer advocacy and at CDC in the Division of Global Health Protection. I did a practicum on a WASH program in Kenya, and helped with research in the Exercise is Medicine Global Research and Collaboration Center. I’m excited for you to love Rollins as much as I do!
Hi! My name is Meredith Yinger and I am a second year Health Policy and Management student at Rollins. I am originally from Maryland, right outside of Washington, D.C., and I graduated from the University of Pittsburgh in 2015 with a degree in Psychology. In my year between undergrad and Rollins, I worked as an EMT and a Patient Care Tech at a women’s hospital in Pittsburgh. I am a northeasterner at heart, but I love living in Atlanta and being able to explore the south. Currently, I am working at the Emory Autism Center on 2 different projects. One of my favorite things about Rollins is all of the career development opportunities that we have as students, along with the incredible education we get inside the classroom. I am excited to meet you and show you all of the great things about this school!
