Public Health

Liz Levaro and Lisa Oakley

For Lisa, it was a true case of “mother knows best” that brought her to OSU to do graduate work in international public health. For Liz, her late-life search for meaningful work drew her to the PhD program in human development and family sciences. Mother and daughter are fulfilling their dreams together, and in June of 2009, they will don their black robes and mortarboards and receive their degrees from the College of Health and Human Sciences.
