Alexandra is one of our grad students, studying Epidemiology and Biostatistics. Her area of interest is children’s health and obesity, particularly adolescent children, as many hormonal changes are occurring around this age. She also wants to study factors that contribute to the onset of obesity as adolescents and into early adulthood. After she earns her MPH at USC, she’d like to pursue a PhD in Epidemiology.

Meet Sunil SaithUSC MPH Online Graduate, Class of 2016 Concentration: Biostatistics and Epidemiology
"My time as a resident in our nation's capital during the passage of the Affordable Care Act, inspired me to take a broader leadership role beyond that of a clinician. It was becoming clear that an interdisciplinary approach had been successful in treating important economically-burdensome conditions such as acute decompensated heart failure. The USC MPH online program allowed me the opportunity to enhance my understanding of how biostatistics can help modulate clinical decision-making and identify its limitations. Since completing my degree during my residency, I was able to publish a case report as a lead author, present several posters at my research fair and am currently working on co-authoring a book chapter on the epidemiology of heart failure as a fellow at New York University. The flexibility and support of this program has provided me with the resources that would not otherwise be available to me in a traditional brick and mortar format."
Meet Howard LuongUSC MPH Online Student, Class of 2017 (expected) Concentration: Global Health Leadership
Being in the Air Force, I travel a lot and I am located in different time zones. This instructors in this program are very understanding and accommodating to my schedule. Through this program, I am able to apply what I learned to help better my interaction with people of different cultures to accomplish defense and national goals. This program also gave me the skills and resources to construct an effective diet and fitness plan for my squadron in which everyone is excelling in their physical training. I have acquired many skills that I will be able to utilize not only in the military but also on the civilian side.
Meet Michael Pham, MPH, NREMT-ParamedicUSC MPH Online Alumnus, Class of 2016 Concentration: Health Education and Promotion
I pursued my MPH online with USC in order to supplement my full-time work as a health educator and Director for my own organization and company. The freedom and ability to attend webinars, while communicating with my colleagues online in discussion and group projects, were great opportunities that I truly appreciated. I feel that I was able to succeed and learn as much as a full-time student on campus. The program allowed me to see the effectiveness of a distance program for working professionals, as well as fostering the same development and professional growth as any other student. Moreover, the USC faculty, despite being virtual, were as committed and invested into my learning and empowerment as much as any other professor on campus. I truly have valued every opportunity that came my way as a MPH online student. While far from Los Angeles county, I was still able to meet with professors and attend events through USC!
