Can you speak about the faculty here?
Every single person that I've come in touch with here at MUIH has been incredibly helpful. My current professor, Claudia Joy Wingo, is such a well-rounded font of knowledge! She has been a wonderful source of help and advice since the time that I was just pondering entrance to this degree program.

I would have to say attending the Redefining Health weekend workshop with Dianne Connelly and Bob Duggan, the founders of MUIH.
