Podcast with This Is Public Health Ambassador Noble Salwan
JPHMP presents Public Health Perspectives, a podcast series targeted towards strengthening the future public health workforce. We will explore the narratives of public health care professionals and gain insight on career paths that shape the profession.
In this episode of Public Health Perspectives, Noble Salwan, an MPH student at Saint Louis University talks about his passion for public health and how he was able to channel that passion into becoming an ambassador for This Is Public Health (TIPH). According to the group’s website, “The This is Public Health (TIPH) campaign was created by the Association of Schools and Programs of Public Health (ASPPH) to brand public health and raise awareness of how public health affects individuals, families, communities, and populations. The simple statement – This Is Public Health – has proven to be a powerful tool in raising awareness about and support for public health efforts.”
Noble Salwan is currently pursuing a Masters of Public Health degree with a concentration in Behavioral Science/Health Education & Epidemiology. He has experience researching the transmission dynamics of community-acquired methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (CA-MRSA) in pediatric patients and their families with the Washington University School of Medicine. Additionally, he aids in conducting a women’s health store audit with Saint Louis University, collecting data for women’s health products across local stores in order to raise awareness of women’s health.
