Alison Molitor, M.P.H.
Department: Division of Epidemiology
I received my undergraduate degrees in Journalism/Mass Communication and Psychology from the University of Iowa in 2013. Upon moving to Richmond in the summer of 2013, I had the opportunity to work with Sports Backers, where I was able to see first-hand the impact of working directly with the community to encourage physical activity and healthy living. Fast forward three years, and I now do research at VCU in the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. Together, these experiences helped me to develop a particular interest in primary care and underserved and rural populations.
I chose VCU because of its emphasis on hands-on learning and its faculty and staff who have valuable real-world experience that they are more than willing to share with students. The flexibility that the program offers allows students to create an educational experience that truly fits their interests and needs in order to excel in the Public Health field after graduation.
