Topic: Road to the PhD: A pictorial presentation of my path past, present, and future
"Yon pwason ki mouri nan dlo se pa nwaye l nwaye; A fish that dies in water did not drown". This Haitian proverb symbolizes my spirited pursuit to heal as a global health researcher at the intersection of science, health, and policy, engineering systems to promote wellness for all. My Haitian heritage and global perspective allow me to serve diverse, low-resourced populations through shared cultural understanding. Given increasing globalization and connectivity, I am invested in cultivating health systems with equity as the foundation.
