"[Because the program is mostly online,] I was able to work full-time while earning my MPH, allowing me to gain the knowledge to support my current role as well as expanding my skillset for future career opportunities. The on-site sessions were a key benefit – they enhanced the student/instructor experience and allowed me to create a special bond with my classmates, the type of bond that can only happen through in-person interaction."
