Note to Current Students
Even though I did not go on to work in the field of Anthropology, I never regret the time I spent studying and learning at Colorado State University. An anthropological perspective is highly advantageous to my work in public health. I spent many years working with at risk first time parents. My interactions with my clients were positively influenced by the evolutionary and cultural perspective I gained at CSU. I continue to use that perspective and writing/researching skills in my current health informatics position. The 2 years I spent at CSU Anthro's graduate program were pivotal. Thank you to the staff and my fellow students from the years 1993 - 1995!
