Reflection on earning a public health degree from SPHIS

Dr. Maymon has always had a passion for helping others and an interest in healthcare. He said as he matured and further educated himself, he found his two interests merging, which made the MPH program the perfect fit for him.

He said, “Once I started at SPHIS I wanted to get involved as much as possible. My goal was to expand my outlook on the numerous possibilities an MPH offers and narrow down what a good fit was for me. I worked part-time at The House of Ruth in Louisville as a counselor and later was promoted to become a case manager. I did my internship as a wellness consultant and my practicum as a wellness program evaluator at Humana to gain experience in the private sector. I volunteered at UofL Hospital as a research assistant to gain academic exposure to public health. Some might say I spread myself thin, but I value the experience I gained, which ultimately guided me to my career path today.”

Dr. Maymon continued by adding, “The SPHIS program broadened my perspective on population health and at the same time helped me zoom in to the level of individual healthcare. It also helped me focus my vision on healthcare and enabled me to hone in on my true calling to pursue naturopathic medical school.”
