2nd Year MPH: Marina Bruck

Category : #WeAreEmoryEPI

For this week’s #IamEmoryEpi spotlight, we met up with Marina Bruck!

Tell us a little bit about your academic history:

I was a pre-med Spanish major at the University of Florida (Go Gators!)

What are your primary research interests?

My primary research interests include hospital epi, infectious disease, and climate change.

What are you looking forward to this spring semester?

I am really looking forward to graduation in May, and hoping the Gators make the NCAA tournament!

Are there any exciting projects or experiences you are involved in right now?

I am currently working as an intern with the Infection Prevention team at Emory University Hospital Midtown. I get to do surveillance of HAI’s and work on teams made up of people from across all sectors of the hospital.

What is your favorite part about earning your MPH at Rollins?

My favorite part of earning my MPH at Emory is hearing about all the awesome things my friends are doing. Everyone has a different passion, and I love that we can all share that.

What advice do you have for 1st year MPH students?

Put down the books once in a while and enjoy this great city you’re living in. Whether it’s joining a yoga class in a different part of town or grabbing a bite after class, each neighborhood in ATL has it’s own personality!

What books are you currently reading, or what podcasts are you currently listening to?

My current favorite podcast is “Battleground:Florida,” which talks about everything from the political climate to the film industry.

What are three fun facts that you want people to know about you?

  1. I grew up 30 minutes from Disney World.
  2. My favorite movie of all time is Jaws.
  3. I’ve only ever seen snow twice and that is more than enough for me!
