I got a taste for Exercise Physiology, Public Health, Nutrition, and Health Behavior. I changed disciplines in my career from fitness to public health and I am so glad I had foundational knowledge across multiple disciplines to easily make that transition." - Brittany Raup, '10, M'17  Oncology Grants Manager, Inspira Health Network
