๐ŸŒŸMeet Andrew Plaxco, our Graduate Student Spotlight recipient and dedicated UofM Global student hailing from Mt. Juliet, Tennessee. He is currently pursuing his Masters of Public Health - Generalist degree.

๐ŸŽ“Andrew earned his Associate of General Science from Pellissippi State Community College and his Bachelor of Science with a Major in Preprofessional Biology and Minor in Chemistry from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.

๐Ÿ‘จโ€โš•๏ธHe embarked on his MPH journey during the final year of optometry school, navigating through it while completing a residency in ocular disease at the Memphis VAMC. Balancing MPH studies with part-time work at Americaโ€™s Best, he has a fellowship through the American Academy of Optometry, proving that education thrives amidst a bustling personal and professional life.

๐Ÿ’™Choosing UofM for its flexibility in online education, Andrew values the convenience and support that have allowed him to excel as an online student. Despite packed weekdays working from 7:30 am to 4:00 pm, Andrew carves time during lunch breaks and weekends for his studies. Dr. Titu's Environmental Health class, despite being online, left a lasting impression, underscoring the quality of education at UofM. For Andrew, the drive to challenge oneself and avoid complacency fueled the decision to pursue advanced education at UofM.

๐Ÿ“šAndrew's accomplishments shine through presentations last year, revealing research on peripheral OCT's role in assessing retinal holes and the impact of NSAID use on retinopathy due to gastric ulcer. Successfully completing his residency training at the Memphis VAMC is a testament to his dedication.

๐Ÿ’ปFor those juggling multiple roles, Andrew suggests viewing education as a fun hobby. Post-graduation, he plans to integrate the skills gained from the MPH into his private practice.
