PBPM Alumni Profile:

Maggie Salinger

"I’m two years out of the program, and I keep in better touch with my Goucher classmates and professors than with my friends from undergrad. I like knowing that I have this solid group of people entering the profession with me."


As a teenager, Maggie thought about pursuing basketball as a career; in college, she turned her focus to public health and international development. She was the director for International Projects at Nourish, a student-run sustainable development organization that partners with organizations overseas. After Goucher, she spent two years working at the NIH's National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. She received a Robert W. Woodruff Fellowship for her medical studies at Emory.
