Trojan Success Story Alexandra Bodan

University of Southern California MPH Online Program (USCMPH)

I am currently a 2nd year graduate majoring in Public Health with my track degree in Epidemiology and Biostatistics. My area of interest in in Children’s Health and Obesity, particularly adolescent children as many hormonal changes are occurring around this age during puberty. I am interested in studying factors that contribute to the onset of obesity as adolescents and into early adulthood. After obtaining my master’s degree at USC, I would like to explore the opportunity of pursing a PhD in Epidemiology which will enable me to run my own research studies while concurrently teaching others who are interested in public health professions.
