“Everyday there’s something going on in our world that will need attention from public health workers. I want to be a part of helping,” says Jasmine Riddle, who will receive her bachelor of science in community health education this May.
Riddle knows first-hand how essential community health programs can be. The Asheville native is the first in her family to attend college and credits community programs with helping to get her there.
“I grew up going to a lot of community organizations. The change that they try to make in our communities and the way they try to give back really made an impact on my journey and getting me here. I want to be the same resource to other people in need,” Riddle says.
