What are some passion project ideas that a student interested in the health field can do?

I'm passionate about arts and health. I've already done a passion project for art, which was curating and sponsoring a teen-art gallery to support a non-profit. Not only that, but I've done some volunteering at hospitals and Red Cross, which has been great so far. What are some ideas for a health-related project.

Is a Google data analytics certificate in college worth it?

I am an upcoming senior majoring with a B.A in public health and needing some advice / opinions on possibly pursuing a Google certificate over the summer. My original plan was to obtain an internship/ volunteer opportunity to build some experience, but I have not at all. Career wise I have been looking into possibly pursuing health administration, environmental health and safety, or even data analytics or program manager positions in the future. But, I really dont know since public health is such a broad field. With all that being said I was wondering if completing a Google certificate in data analytics would be worth it even if I dont end up going into that exact field. My thought process is maybe having that knowledge of data entry could help my resume for other fields. I just want an opinion on whether it is a smart choice or if I should focus my time elsewhere. Thank you!

MPH or MSOT? I have been struggling with deciding if I should pursue a MPH or a masters of science in Occupational Therapy?

I am very indecisive, especially when it comes to choose a career and one that pays well. I was leaning towards a MPH however Occupational Therapy has been in my head lately also because I feel as I am going to be " licensed" or " qualified" and I will always find a job easily, compared to a MPH, while the jobs are endless with a MPH I can't help but to think that I'll just be working in an office all day typing and doing paperwork. :( help will be deeply appreciated. #career #occupational-therapy #medicine #career #physical-therapy #public-health #medical #mph
