"I have a Bachelors degree in General Biology but i have a great passion for Public Health hence my decision to pursue one of the programs on this site. I find the materials very helpful and easy to understand because the notes are simplified. OCW is a very useful initiative because it has given me a platform to gain useful knowledge which will give me a good foundation for my graduate studies. I hope to enroll for an MPH later in the future and work as a research Scientist in Infectious disease research."
- Bryan Sinyangwe, Zambia
