Biography:
Connie Currier, DrPH, MPH, is Assistant Professor and advisor for the Program. She is responsible for coordinating international and domestic practicum/field experiences for students, as well as developing and teaching global public health-related courses targeted at MPH, medical, undergraduate, and high school students. Her graduate degrees are from the University of Michigan: the Doctor of Public Health (DrPH) in health policy; and a joint Master of Public Health (MPH) in both Population Planning and International Health, and Public Health Policy and Administration. Dr. Currier’s teaching and research interests focus on the values of social justice and cultural competence as essential to good public health practice. She believes preparing students with knowledge and skills in these areas is essential to enable them to successfully address the increasingly complex global public health challenges they will face as they enter the workforce.
