Is a career in public health right for me? - YouTube

People with various jobs in the public health industry describe their positions.
Maddie Ransom's insight:

My mom first introduced me to the idea of a public health degree and so I was curious as to what a public health degree could include. This video interviews many people who earned degrees in public health and what they do for a job. The people interviewed were biostatisticians,  epidemiologists, public health consultants, and more. After doing research on nutritionists and dietitians, I realized that maybe a career in public health is right for me. I don't want to necessarily work with certain patients, but I want to work with the community and schools to improve their health. This video allowed me to see the different jobs that a public health degree could lead to.

The BYU-I Experience - Rethinking Education - YouTube

Why do students choose to come to BYU-Idaho? To learn more about the BYU-Idaho experience, visit us at: http://www.byui.edu/Admissions
Maddie Ransom's insight:

This video talks about BYU-Idaho. This is not just another campus to BYU, it is very different. It is smaller and does not have sports teams, and it is in a smaller town. However, it still has the environment that I am looking for in a school. It also is relatively inexpensive, which is a plus. This video really exemplifies the positive qualities of academics and social experience at BYU-Idaho.
