Hi there! My name is Peggy. I have a Masters of Public Health focusing on Health Behavior and Health Education, specifically in Health Communication, Policy, Politics and a light dusting of Health Informatics. I majored in Human Biology and minored in Bioethics, Humanities and Society in undergrad. On this blog I talk about my pursuit of a public health career, my personal creative projects, as well as human medicine and biology, science!, public health, politics, Feminism, body positivity, GSRM rights, mental health andddd reproductive health (phew!).
I was an editor and writer for the UM SPH blog. I have a tumblr and you can find me on twitter @nastyfembiolady. I was a submissions editor for SciNote. I wrote a few times for feminspire. I also briefly wrote for my school’s newspaper .
“The ability to tell you story, in words or in images, is already a victory, already a revolt”
“There are two kinds of truth: the truth that lights the way and the truth that warms the heart. The first of these is science, and the second is art. Neither is independent of the other or more important than the other. Without art science would be as useless as a pair of high forceps in the hands of a plumber. Without science art would become a crude mess of folklore and emotional quackery. The truth of art keeps science from becoming inhuman, and the truth of science keeps art from becoming ridiculous.” — Raymond Chandler
