Nadira C. Johnson
Department: Division of Epidemiology
I received my undergraduate degree from George Mason University in Neuroscience with a minor in psychology. After graduating I worked in a lab for a few years while trying to figure out what I wanted to do for the rest of my career. In January of 2015 I volunteered at the Mosby Court Resource Center in Richmond Virginia. It was there that I discovered my passion for public health. I began my public health education at VCU in the fall of 2017. VCU has awarded me with so many opportunities. I have loved being able to do my internship, practicum, and service learning with different organizations in the city. I would recommend VCU to anyone because having a small classroom size has allowed me to be able to succeed as a student. I have also been able to build relationships with others in my cohort.
In my spare time I enjoy volunteering with schools and health clinics serving the Richmond community. I have a passion for health education. I plan to use all the experience and knowledge I have gained from my time here at VCU in order to further help members in my community and elsewhere.
