In this episode, I share an interview with Dr. Rebecca Drewette-Card.
Dr. Drewette-Card is the President of Public Health Partners, which is a woman-owned consulting firm based in Maine and serving clients throughout the United States. She was also one of the cohosts of my first Public Health Consulting and Entrepreneurship Expo held back in March of 2019.
Dr. Drewette-Card previously worked for the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in the Public Health Prevention Service. She has also worked in state health departments in New Mexico, Oregon, North Carolina and Maine. Additionally, she has worked at a small college and a large university.
Her career has given her both breadth and depth of experience, which has provided her with opportunities to develop a wide-range of public health skills including social marketing, report-writing, intervention development, coalition-building, program planning, evaluation, conference and training development, and public speaking.
Dr. Drewette-Card joins me on this interview to share her journey into public health, and shares some tips and advice for students, graduates, job-seekers, and advice for anyone thinking about building a business in public health.
