Corbin Kappler, MPH '18

I was working in the field of international development and it became clear that if I wanted to advance my career and truly make a difference I would need to earn my MPH. I chose to study with NYU because I knew of the high quality education that I would receive but also because of the relationships that I would establish. Sure enough, I am in my current position directly because of the connections that I made while taking a course with NYU.
