Leah Holmes is a junior at Lehigh currently majoring in Psychology and minoring in the HMS program. After graduation, Leah plans to go to physical therapy school to earn her DPT. The HMS program and classes offered helped her prepare for what she plans to pursue after graduation. She found the health care politics and introduction to public health class extremely interesting, and inspired her to pursue a career in health and medicine. The classes provided her with great insight on health care disparities in the US and other countries.
“I enjoyed my Health Care politics class especially because I plan on working in the health field and it provided me with an understanding of how insurance companies, hospitals, and other public health institutions operate. The HMS program made the most of my experience at Lehigh because it provides a lot of interesting classes for students like me, planning on going into the public health field.”
