On Wednesday, October 25th, Levy Library presented "Emerging Careers in Public Health: Consulting" in partnership with the Graduate Program in Public Health. This evening provided a peek into the life of a public health consultant and the the many roads that can lead there. 


The night's outstanding panelists: 

Aisha Moore, MPH CHC - Project Director, John Snow, Inc.

Anne Thorsen, MPH - Healthcare Consultant, Cognizant Consulting, Cognizant Technology Solutions

Tara Partovi, MPH - Senior Manager of Stakeholder Engagement, Mount Sinai Health System, Performing Provider System

Participants heard from each panelist about their current positions, educational backgrounds, career journeys, day-to-day life on the job, and the skills needed to be successful in public health consulting. Key takeaways from the evening included: consultants need to be entrepreneurs and advocate for themselves, there is no such thing as a typical day, seniority may vary from project to project, and be prepared to work with all kinds of personalities. 





Thank you to all who came out !
