Navigating your prospective career options can sometimes feel like trying to find something in a fog. You’re stumbling around, doing your best to reach your destination, but you don’t really know what it is you’re looking for until you find it; and then it all makes sense. That is how today’s guest, Joshua Smith, describes his journey into public health. Joshua is an enrolled member of the Klamath tribes and serves as a Health Communication and Evaluation Specialist with the Improving Data and Enhancing Access Project at the Northwest Tribal Epidemiology Center (NWTEC).
This episode of the Public Health Epidemiology Conversations (PHEC) Podcast is part of a special sponsored series of episodes, offering insights into the Tribal Epidemiology Centers in the US. In Dr. Huntley’s conversation with Joshua, they discuss his perspective on public health, epidemiology, and the impact of tribal epidemiology centers on the tribal communities that he serves.
