Jennifer Gunderman

I came into public health by failing organic chemistry as an undergraduate at Providence College. My goal was to be a physician but soon realized that my skill and passion belonged elsewhere. Luckily my college has a public health major, and the rest is history.  My background includes being a Peace Corps volunteer in Niger, working with the state of Maine health department as an infectious disease epidemiologist, providing technical assistance to Caribbean countries on HIV surveillance, and even owning an organic farm.  I live in Liberty, Maine with my 3 children where we enjoy being outdoors as much as possible.
