Assistant Professor Shannon McMorrow has been appointed interim director of UIndy’s new Master of Public Health degree program, which begins this fall.

Dr. McMorrow joined the Department of Kinesiology in August, after earning her own MPH from San Jose State University and working as a community health education practitioner for more than 10 years in various settings across the United States, Belize and Uganda.

“Shannon’s global experience in public health makes her a terrific choice to lead UIndy’s MPH program,” said College of Health Sciences Dean Stephanie Kelly. “In addition to her depth of experience, we think students will be well served by Shannon’s passion for highlighting and addressing health disparities between groups of people around the world.”

UIndy’s Master of Public Health is one of few in the nation focusing on health disparities, and it will be one of the only such programs in Indiana offered primarily online. Interested students can learn more here.
