Jasmine Pulliam graduated from the UTC MPH program in May 2021. She now works as a clinical research coordinator at Emory University SOM in their Neurology Department. Her current role involves working with participants in Georgia at the Goizueta Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center to help discover biomarkers that predict Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.
Jasmine became interested in research after her time spent working with the UTC COVID-19 Contact Tracing Team where she worked under the direction of Dr. Dawn Ford as a team manager. Working on the team showed Jasmine that she was capable of working to help others in a different capacity than she was previously used to and that she was indeed capable of handling a challenging career in the future. She also emphasizes the impact that the MPH curriculum had in helping her develop a more holistic approach to healthcare and her belief in the uniqueness and potential of every individual’s journey through life.
In her free time Jasmine likes to maintain an active lifestyle. She enjoys practicing kickboxing and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, going on hikes (waterfalls are always a plus), and spending time with friends and family.
