Student Testimony:
Meet Dalton Wesemann

“Working in public health just means finding ways to help the people who need it most, and making that happen through policy.”

– Dalton Wesemann,
Master of Public Health Student

When he’s not studying, Dalton has a research position at OHSU. He recently presented his findings on the health aspects of at-risk youth at a neuroscience symposium in Wisconsin and at OHSU Research Week.

“The MPH program gave me a foundation of technical knowledge, practical skills, and professional connections upon which I’ve been able to build my career in public health.”

SPH Alumni Spotlight on Emily Henke

“I had the chance to work with different counties, to hear about participant experiences, and to be a part of a Dr. Snowden’s team. My work with Dr. Snowden led me to continue working with the OHA as a Travel Epidemiologist for a year. I feel grateful for all the connections I’ve continued to make that lead me to new positions and new experiences in public health.”
