Joncel Stephens

Alumni of Georgia State University
A Smyrna, GA native and Georgia Tech alumna (B.S. Biology) currently attending Georgia State University as a Master's in Public Health Candidate with a concentration in Epidemiology. After serving as an AmeriCorps member at an Atlanta middle school, my love for helping children in underserved communities grew. My goal is to have a career that lies at the intersection of practicing medicine and using public health principles to help communities in need. I am currently seeking research and data analytics employment opportunities to apply what I have learned in the Master's program so far.
