"In a year marked by a global pandemic, figuring out what to say to a group of people about to enter into the public health workforce is simultaneously easy and extremely difficult. I’m grateful for the opportunity to remind graduates of our vital role as public health people to use our education for the benefit of our communities, uplift the voice of those who have been marginalized, and fight for health equity.

 Public health is important now more than ever."
