Samuel Robinson
Public health student

“I enjoyed the practical experience during my student placements. It’s one thing learning the skills in a classroom or a textbook, but it’s another thing to put them into practice in the real world and interact with real people and their problems. Suddenly it’s not just a Word document on my laptop.

During my practical experience, I was exposed to just how powerful health promotion is in the prevention of health issues. I hope to make an impact by improving awareness and education about the modifiable risk factors of preventable, non-communicable diseases.”
