Summary: Dear Ms. Vuterson,
Thank you for taking the time to meet with me on Tuesday,
November 5th to discuss the field of epidemiology. Although I
have researched what education is necessary to become an epidemiologist,
your first-hand knowledge was invaluable to my Understanding
of the many career options in this field. It was helpful to learn
that well-prepared research in epidemiology includes staying abreast
of public health legislation. Also, the emphasis you gave on the
importance of knowing the people and issues in my community was
something I'll take very seriously.
I have already contacted some organizations in my community
where I can begin volunteering. When I choose courses for the next semester,
I will be more confident in my Sociology major knowing that you were a
liberal arts major in college.
Furthermore, thank you for referring me to a specific resource
related to epidemiology. I appreciate your candor about your experiences and
will keep you posted about my graduate process.
