Dr. Rochelle Logan graduated this summer with her DrPH in advance leadership in public health practice from the USF COPH. She has worked in the field of public health practice for more than 14 years after earning her BS in community health education and her MPH in social and behavioral health science from Morgan State University in Baltimore.

She selected the USF COPH after being intrigued by the robust curriculum of the DrPH program, which encourages students to hone in on the skills they are presented in their coursework and immediately apply them in their current professional roles.  

During her time as a student at the COPH, Logan has been honored with the Association of Maternal and Child Health Programs Go Beyond Emerging Graduate Student Scholarship Award and inducted into the Tau Chapter of Delta Omega Honorary Society in Public Health.

Logan said that she is most proud of maintaining a cumulative 4.0 GPA while simultaneously, working diligently to aid underserved communities across the country through her full-time federal position.   

“Upon graduation, I plan to continue my federal career as a dedicated public servant championing for at-risk communities and advocating for funding to reduce health disparities,” Logan said.

Currently, she serves as a policy specialist for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services within the Administration for Children and Families, Office of Head Start where she is charged with developing new and innovative plans and initiatives to evaluate services to diverse children, birth to five, and their families.

“My dream job is one where I can use the knowledge I have gained throughout my matriculation at USF to be a leader in the field of public health practice,” Logan said.
