The MSHWM program provided me with an opportunity to pursue a new career while working full-time. As a result of the curriculum, I began to see my workplace in a different light and how that impacts one's well being.  While enrolled, I was able to pursue a volunteer opportunity that ultimately led to a position within the HWM field. 
Many of the degrees I researched were niche, with a narrow focus in population or community health.  Having a strong foundation in project management, research, policy, and management, helps my communication with the teams and makes the programs I develop more effective.

Herschel A. Ryales has returned to school "at the young age of 75" to better his health and the health of his neighbors. He admits that a lot has changed since his 1960s undergraduate college days.

Why Health and Wellness?
“Health and wellness became more of a passion as I got older when I realized that I would be facing health challenges,” Herschel said. “I’m not only volunteering for others, I’m essentially volunteering for myself.”
