Student Profile

Marcella Gregory
JD-MPH Student

marcella"Four years ago, a law dual degree program was almost unheard of, especially a JD-MPH. The fact that the IU Richard M. Fairbanks School of Public Health was among the few that offered this innovative program and it was located in a dynamic metropolitan area solidified my desire to become a student. Acquiring two professional degrees in four years was an amazing opportunity I would do again. This program offers a wide range of classes during the year and great options during the summer. The professors are knowledgeable on the subjects they teach and genuinely want to see you succeed. Through the courses I've taken, I know I'm meant to be a public health lawyer. I want to analyze the way in which law is used as a tool to promote public health initiatives. The JD-MPH program supports the connection between these two disciplines and creates public health advocates prepared to improve quality of life. This past summer I worked for the CDC in their public health law program - they hire only interns currently in a duel degree JD-MPH program."
