Vanessa Crowthers

I am a fourth-year doctoral student at Florida A&M University (FAMU), Institute of Public Health.  My career goals are: 1) to be a leader in behavior science and health education, with an emphasis on implementing evidence-based interventions, outcome measurement and public health genomics. 2) to inspire the younger generation with the importance of public health, advocacy and direct involvement with their local communities, through a professorship post upon completing my doctor of public health degree. 3) conduct behavioral science research to develop public health interventions that will have an impact in reducing racial and ethnic health disparities and improving health equity in disadvantage minority communities.
