Recently the Reading Pilot published a feature on one of the Bloomberg School’s alumna, Paige Armstrong, MD, BA/MHS’08. Paige came to us prior to medical school, and graduated with her BA/MHS in Environmental Health Sciences. Currently, she is using her medical degree to serve Public Health rather than individual patients. She credits her time here at Bloomberg to seeing the larger impact she could make by focusing on the population rather than the individual. She is currently fulfilling a two-year assignment with the Epidemic Intelligence Service at the Center for Disease Control. Her job? Disease detective.
Paige is on a team focusing on mycotic disease, or fungal diseases. Even though she had not worked with mycotic diseases prior to earning her position, she is enjoying the work. To read more about Paige, her work and her future plans, you can read the whole article on the Reading Pilot’s website.
