The Ellie Block and Family Career Services Center at the Friedman School is committed to helping our students and graduates leverage their outstanding experiential education to find impactful and fulfilling careers. Our career coaches leverage their many years of experience, career development training and practice, and industry and employer insights, to assist students and alumni.
The Friedman School pursues cutting-edge research and education from cell to society, including in molecular nutrition, human metabolism, population studies, clinical trials, nutrition interventions and behavior change, communication, food systems and sustainability, global food insecurity, humanitarian crises, and food economics and policy.
Currently, I blog about healthy and sustainable living, productivity, and adventures in motherhood at www.CaitlinWHowe.com, where I also offer writing and public health consulting services. With a passion for social justice, community empowerment, and health promotion, I have more than a decade of experience in public health and nutrition. I have served in roles for a national health nonprofit, school district, public health department, and various research institutes. I hold a master of public health and a master of nutrition from Tufts University, and a bachelor of science from Davidson College.
The Friedman School facilitated my professional and intellectual growth by creating an environment supportive of advancement and collaboration. The aid I received as a student allowed me to have fantastic experiences that contributed to this growth, and this aid would not have been possible without help from friends of the Friedman School. I want current and future students to have similar marvelous experiences. Therefore, I give and volunteer with the Executive Council in order to support a group of dynamic, forward-thinking students who are constantly pushing the envelope through nutrition research, community engagement, and policy.
