Alumna Gaby Coronel's Peace Corps Journey “We are very excited to offer our graduate programs to returning Peace Corps volunteers,”
said Dr. Randy Wykoff, Dean of the College of Public Health. “These students are highly
experienced, altruistic, and motivated and they bring a seasoned world view. They
will both add to, and benefit from, our commitment to practical, applied and “real
world” training in public health.”
