Students of SPH

Inari Mohammed was born in Ethiopia and grew up in Minneapolis. She came to SPH for her MPH in 2017 and is now working on her PhD in epidemiology. Mohammed spent time during the pandemic as a case investigator with the Minnesota Department of Health and volunteered with the Seward Vaccine Equity Project to increase the accessibility of COVID-19 vaccinations among underserved communities. What does she like about living in Minnesota?
