These videos are available for anyone to use and they support the implementation of our school’s Strategic Plan for Antiracism.

Students of SPH

Kaylee Lammers got her BS in Biology with a concentration in developmental genetics from Stony Brook University. She wanted to help people while also using her background in biology and public health seemed like the perfect fit. During a gap year, she worked for two crisis prevention centers and learned a lot more about the barriers that exist for people wth mental health challenges. In her Public Health Administration & Policy program, she’s working with her state senator to assure better outcomes for kids.

Why is SPH a good fit for her?

“I moved halfway across the country without knowing anyone who lives here,” says Kaylee. “SPH has really provided me with a lot of support and mentors. They’ve all made sure that I’ve always had someone to turn to.”
