About the podcast

What is Public Health Joy?

In my experience, building a public health research career has been hard, but what keeps me going is finding the joy in the journey.Perhaps the most valuable part of my public health research journey has been the relationships I’ve built along the way.

I’ve learned over the years that when research meets relationship, the possibilities are endless.

Every 1st and 3rd Friday of the month, I want you to join me as we share creative and innovative approaches to public health research and the relationships we build along the way that bring us joy!

Host: Dr. Joyee Washington
