Ian Rodgers completed his Master of Public Health in epidemiology with a certificate in Public Health and Humanitarian Assistance at the Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health. Ian earned his BA in Biology from the University of San Diego. After graduating, he spent two years as an international Jesuit Volunteer in Chuuk, Federated States of Micronesia, working in education. His time in the FSM led him to pursue his MPH, and he plans to focus on global mental health throughout his studies at the Mailman School.
In 2017, Ian completed his Global Practicum at the Federal Neuropsychiatric Hospital, Aro in Southwestern Nigeria, working with members of the Aro Primary Care and Mental Health Program team. Together, he and Busayo Ojo, another Mailman epidemiology student, created an electronic database of the 2000 patients the program has seen since its inception in 2011. After completing the Global Practica, Ian joined the WHO Collaborating Center team as a Research Assistant for the remainder of his time as an MPH student.Back to previous page
