To whom it may concern:
As an Environmental Public Health graduate from The Ohio State University, I am qualified by a unique blend of qualifications pertaining to academic competences, field experiences as well as data and laboratory analytics necessary to showcase success as a community health inspector. Originally from Troy, this position becomes of heightened interest to me because I have always devoted myself to make a lasting impression on my community’s overall health and well-being.
Working as a Sanitarian would provide me with the opportunity to further my career and knowledge of the vast array and multidisciplinary field of public health. The field of public health is ever-changing, so it remains pertinent to stay up to date on policy changes and environmental health protocols impacting our population’s health. Environmental health has always been of concern to me; I want to indulge in this particular area of study because our society is readily impacted by our work environments and everyday surroundings. As a Sanitarian, I would be able to conduct, test, analyze and effectively communicate my findings in order to inform the general public of potential threats to their health.
Throughout my career as a scholar, I have conducted numerous research projects, field experiences, and academic inquiries pertaining to public health, specifically geared and emphasized toward the environmental health domain. As an undergraduate, I was provided the unique opportunity of working alongside some of the nation's top researchers and professors in the field. In doing so, I was able to conduct mock trials and outbreak investigations relating to foodborne outbreaks and environmental health risk assessments. For instance, I was able to work closely with Dr. Bill Miller, Associate Professor of Epidemiology at Ohio State, on a selected Salmonella outbreak investigation at a local park in Columbus.
Throughout my career, I have taken on several diverse challenges and successfully proven my ability to deliver positive results in return. I would be absolutely enthralled to further discuss the possibility of doing the same as a Sanitarian at Miami County Public Health. I look forward to any potential opportunity that may be presented from this in order to help expand my knowledge and further my experience moving forward with a successful career in Public Health. I look forward to hearing back from Miami County Public Health in regard to this wonderful opportunity.
