Elizabeth Parra Dang:
“My father has worked in public health his entire career and is still its biggest fan! Currently, he is a champion for reducing global tobacco use.
“Growing up my whole life surrounded by CDC and public health endeavors, my father’s passion for the field has clearly inspired me to take a similar path. He has always been supportive of my choices but I am sure the reason for making wise choices in the first place is due to my solid upbringing.
“My parents always say my sister and I were a piece of cake to raise….but I’m sure they had a lot to do with that for which we are very lucky!”
