MSc Public Health – General streamContact Hyunyoung Jade Kim
I am Hyunyoung Jade Kim from the Republic of Korea and prefer to be called Jade. I am currently studying the general stream in the MSc Public Health programme.
For my bachelor, I have studied English Language and Literature and Business Administration (dual degree). I have 3+ years of work experience in maternal newborn child health and sexual reproductive health in East African countries (Tanzania, Malawi and Rwanda) with different organisations including the Korean government and UN.
Research interests or career goals
My interests reside in the most vulnerable people including women and girls in low- and middle-income countries. I am particularly passionate about gender and health equity issues.
Why I chose LSHTM/my programme
I had no doubt when choosing LSHTM for my master's programme as it has a world-renowned reputation and strong partnerships and networks. I was appealed to LSHTM's strength in education and research and found LSHTM's wide range of modules attractive as it allows me to focus on specific topics that I am keen on.
