Murphy Anderson, MPH

Vaccine Communications Project Manager

I am from Fargo, ND. I went to Penn State for my undergrad and studied political science, gender studies, and Spanish. Before my current role at NDSU Center for Immunization Research and Education, I worked in philanthropy and various communications roles.

How did the NDSU MPH prepare you for the workforce? 

Through the NDSU MPH program, I learned foundational skills in several areas, including epidemiology, intervention design, and infectious disease. I always knew I wanted a career in communications, but the MPH program solidified that health communications was the right professional space for me. The program pushed my boundaries for what I thought I could learn, do, and be.
