Two UK College of Public Health graduates are currently featured on the site: Dr. Georgia Heise , director of Three Rivers District Health Department in Kentucky, and Dr. Leah Casanave , epidemiologist at the Douglas County Health Department in Nebraska. Watch their accounts below, and consider submitting your own video to the site underwritten by the American Public Health Association, the Association of Schools and Programs of Public Health, the de Beaumont Foundation, and other leading public heath organizations.
