Marina Novaes '19
Public Health

Marina Novaes was inspired to pursue a career in health after a mission trip to El Salvador. Marina's experiences through her sorority, Alpha Sigma Tau, and the peer-education group Campus Advocates for Prevention Education, motivated her to apply (and be accepted into) UML’s Accelerated Bachelor’s to Master’s Public Health program.

The thing that I appreciate most from my professors is their personal dedication to see us succeed as public health professionals, as well as informed, empathetic and compassionate individuals.
