"NYC is an amazing place to learn about public health and about people in general. The cross-section of people living here makes the city vibrant and alive. Going to grad school in NYC can be daunting, but being able to walk and sit in Central Park after an exam is something I’ll always remember.”  - Whitney Wortham, MSW/MPH student
