  • Anne Kang

    “Having completed my undergraduate studies at McMaster University, I had no doubts that I wanted to return to the institution that promoted self-directed problem-based learning.”

    Anne Kang, a recent graduate of McMaster's MPH program, first discovered her passion for public health during her consolidation placement as a BScN student. She had always viewed the health care system as a treatment-focused process, so when she discovered the proactive, upstream approach of public health nursing, Anne decided to pursue further knowledge and training. "Having completed my undergraduate studies at McMaster University, I had no doubts that I wanted to return to the institution that promoted self-directed problem-based learning." After completing the MPH program, Anne went on to work as a clinical research nurse in the Niagara region. She also pursued various short-term projects at the Offord Centre for Child Studies. While working with the community on various health promotion initiatives, Anne realized the impact that basic health practices have on improving larger social determinants of health. As a result, Anne will be attending Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in the fall of 2019 where she hopes to serve populations in under-served and under-resourced communities. "McMaster's MPH program equipped me with the knowledge and skills for evidence-informed decision making in clinical practice, and helped me discover an enthusiasm for lifelong learning. I am confident I will be able to use all that I have learned in every situation, and I wouldn't be surprised if I find myself as a Marauder again in the future!"
