Columbia resident earns public health degree to improve health, wellbeing of local communities

Alexandria (Alex) Taylor, 2021 public health graduate

December 2021 graduate Alexandria Taylor’s holistic approach to health care is why she pursued a public health degree.

Taylor was originally interested in nursing but knew she wanted to be more involved in helping others.

She took the Community Centered Leadership and Innovation course, which gave her hands-on experience in community planning and dynamics in the Five Points area.

“Public health allows me to be everything I am and everything I want to become,” she said. “I’m able to be a creative, a builder, health professional, a problem solver and server to those in need.”
