“I believe that being part of HPRS is important to achieving health equity because we need scholars who not only are training to become experts in their respected fields, but are also leaders—leaders who understand the fundamentals of a dynamic society, working collectively and strategically toward the ultimate goal, a Culture of Health.”
– JAKE RYANN SUMIBCAY
