Justin Serrano, MHA 2019

As an MHA student at the Bloomberg School of Public Health, I gained valuable insights and knowledge from seasoned healthcare professionals across a broad array of health-related disciplines. The foundation I built during my graduate studies enabled me to bring both new and valuable perspectives to the teams I work with today. As the president of the MHA student association, I also had the privilege to work with an amazing group of peers to enhance the overall student experience and bolster our program’s connection to its alumni base. In my current role as a Vice President of Operations at HCA Healthcare, I leverage the skills I built at JHSPH each and every day to support my organization’s commitment to the care and improvement of human life!
