Shenita Freeman, '10 MPH Alumna
Shenita evaluates healthcare quality improvement programs with the Colorado Foundation for Medical Care (CFMC), an organization that works with government programs, health providers and managed care companies to improve the quality of healthcare. She currently assesses the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services' Hospital Inpatient Quality Reporting Program, as well as the Advancing Excellence in Nursing Homes Campaign.
As a former MPH student Shenita enjoyed courses that had a hands on 'real-world' component, such as Environmental and Occupational Health, Food Outbreak Investigation, and Cancer Epidemiology.
She advises, "In addition to your concentration take courses that will strengthen you as an overall public health worker. Keep these 'gems' - you will find them useful in your work being well-rounded is appreciated in the field."
