Nathaniel Fuchs MPH’20 is a senior public health epidemiologist at the Rhode Island Department of Health where he works in the substance use epidemiology program tracking non-fatal opioid overdoses in the state. We asked Nathaniel how his MPH training in the Brown School of Public Health has shaped her career.
How does your Brown training impact your work?
From the COVID-19 outbreak to the ongoing opioid overdose crisis, my training at Brown prepared me to work through the heights of Rhode Island’s two most substantial epidemics. Specifically, having an analytical framework and being able to problem solve were critical skill sets I further developed through the MPH program.
