MSc Public Health – Health Promotion streamContact Salma Hassan
I’m currently a Year 2 part time MSc Public Health student on the health promotion stream at LSHTM and a medical doctor en route to specialising in General Practice in the UK. I trained in Cairo, Egypt where my interest in public health was first kindled. I set up as part of a team of passionate students the Ain Shams Model World Health Organization where we organised multiple public health promotion programmes for pressing concerns such as Diabetes, Hepatitis C and Depression.
Research interests/career goals
My current interest is capacity building for research and evaluation in Public Health in Egypt as well as access to palliative care treatments in low and middle income countries.
As a part time student I was worried about juggling commitments and although its been challenging, especially with the COVID-19 pandemic, I found enough flexibility and understanding to make it work. I am really excited to be part of this great community of inspiring people and more than happy to be able to help any prospective students as a student ambassador this year!
