Public Health Research Analyst

A hashtag that describes my tenure at IQ Solutions: #SaveThePlanet

My experience and expertise revolve around the environmental health field where I’ve learned how to assess exposure to chemical toxins, deliver policy briefs, and provide sustainable solutions to our biggest environmental threats. 

As a curious individual, I love being able to read about the various pillars that encompass public health, how innovative health professionals are reinventing the “three-legged stool,” and what path our field will take us on in the future.

My biggest inspiration comes from traveling and seeing how other cultures and communities invent sustainable solutions for our generation’s biggest threat: climate change. Exploring the world gives me hope for our future.

Contact Lens Health Week

Ninety-nine percent of the 41 million Americans who wear contact lenses wear, wash, or store their lenses in an unhygienic manner.1 These individuals risk eye infections that can cause irritation, dry eye, a scratched cornea, contact lens intolerance, and even loss of vision.

May is National Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month

Asthma affects 24 million Americans including 6.3 million children under the age of 18. More than 50 million Americans have all types of allergies—such as pollen, skin, latex—and this rate is climbing.

Air Quality Awareness Week

Spring is in full bloom, which means summer is right around the corner! The days are getting longer and warmer with more time being spent outdoors in the fresh air.

National Donor Day

February 14 is generally celebrated as Valentine’s Day where people shower their loved ones with flowers, chocolates, and handwritten notes. Many ordinary individuals regard it as National Donor Day.
