Meet the Scholars

“Being in the HPRS program has given me a more well-rounded perspective of the health inequities that persist in our nation and what it looks like to effectively solve them. As an engineer, it’s easy to have a tunnel vision approach to problem-solving. But with family members (formally known as cohort members) and HPRS instructors from Sociology, Psychology, Public Health, Education, Kinesiology, Social Work, Law, Economics, and Anthropology, you can’t help but be a more socially mindful and interdisciplinary researcher.”
– VICTORIA DEAN
