Congratulations to Courtney FitzGerald, MSSW, MPH, who was presented with the UNM College of Population Health’s Outstanding Student Leadership Award in May 2017!

In April 2016, Courtney was elected co-President of the New Mexico Public Health Association (NMPHA) and is currently serving a three-year term. She has been actively engaged in NMPHA’s policy committee, and has helped manage the organization’s annual Health Policy Legislative Forum for the past 6 years. Courtney’s dedication to promoting public health through voluntary service and engagement helped her win the student leadership award.

Courtney has worked at the PRC since April 2007, and completed her Master of Public Health degree at UNM with distinction. At the UNM PRC, Courtney works on the New Mexico Youth Risk and Resiliency Survey (NM-YRRS) and School Health Profiles with Dr. Linda Peñaloza, and on the Healthy Here evaluation with Dr. Theresa Cruz.
