Hello, my name is Aimbora and I’m from Tanzania. I received my bachelor’s degree from Cardinal Stritch University in Biology with a minor in Chemistry and I am currently an MPH graduate student in the Community and Behavioral Health track. After my undergraduate work I have been working in matters relating to food safety. Through participating in a number of outreach programs in the community I knew that public health would be a good fit for me. My interests are general public health with an emphasis on infectious diseases, as this disproportionately affects low-income parts of the world such as Tanzania. I am a volunteer with the AIDS resource center of Wisconsin, Habitat for Humanity and other local organizations that cater to underserved populations. In my free time I also love to travel, enjoy the outdoors and fitness.
In the future I would like to use my degree working in low income parts of the world with their most vulnerable populations such as women, children and the underserved. I hope to develop and build community based interventions that encourage populations to discover their own best practices which can improve health outcomes.
