Chinyere Nwamuo GC'19

Originally from Lagos, Nigeria, Chinyere Nwamuo ’19 currently lives in the Atlanta area and is a program and grant manager at the Georgia Department of Public Health. She earned a Bachelor of Science in behavioral neuroscience and biological anthropology from Emory University and a master’s degree in public health with a concentration in health management and policy from Georgia State University’s School of Public Health.

“I was drawn to the field of public health because of its direct focus on the social and ecological determinants of health,” she says. “I was also drawn to its use of multidisciplinary and multi-sectorial partnerships to develop public health solutions and improve health outcomes.” Having learned about Agnes Scott’s evaluation and assessment methods graduate program through the American Evaluation Association, Nwamuo enrolled in the program because she felt it would offer her the opportunity to strengthen her knowledge, capacity, and practice in innovative programmatic evaluation and decision-making.

“My experience in the program was very positive,” she says. “I am especially thankful for the classmates that have journeyed with me through the program and for the professors’ use of both theoretical and practical teaching strategies.” She notes that one of most interesting classes she took during her studies in the program was on data analysis.“I found it interesting because the professor, Wendy Kallina, walked us through the processes of evaluating and assessing our own data using different methods and strategies. It gave me the tools that I need to strengthen my data analysis skills,” she says. Through the program, Nwamuo says that she has gained an increased interest in evaluation and assessment in her career trajectory as well as important and innovative strategies and tools to evaluate her current public health programs.
