Why FSPH? “My choice to come to UCLA for graduate school is rooted in many factors, the most prominent of which are 1) the proximity and involvement this program allows me to have with my Los Angeles community, and 2) my desire to acquire a knowledge base and skill set within the joint MSW/MPH degree program.”
