Tea Nguyen is a dual degree D.P.M./M.P.H. student at DMU. She was born in Utah but raised in California and left the great state to be at one of the best podiatry school in the country.

She has aspirations in international medical service trips and hopes to hit several continents during this lifetime. Traveling is also on the top of her to-do list and she often reminisces about her prior travels to Italy, France and Greece. She also enjoys eating adventures with her boyfriend Paul and is a major food-snacker. It is not uncommon to find her lapsed in a food coma in the middle of her studies.

    Courtney, I just finished it! I really like some of the concepts regarding social epidemiology. It’s so fascinating and brings light into how the little things really can made a huge different. (I didn’t know Hush Puppies were such a big deal at one point.) My favorite part was comparing Sesame Street to Blue’s Clue. That’s some smart stuff.
