About Celeste: As an undergraduate student, Celeste was given the opportunity to help with research in public health. While working with the community on projects focused on Valley Fever and asthma, she became aware of the need to understand the experiences and beliefs of community members in order to improve their health. It was in a Health Disparities course that Celeste was exposed to the shocking health disparities in minority groups and led to her desire to pursue a career in public health. Celeste hopes to use her degree to help overcome these disparities by empowering underserved communities.
