May 2019 EMS Update: Meet Leslie Carson
New public health fellow joins the Office of EMS team, bringing data expertise as well as social work and public health experience
For as long as she could recall, Leslie Carson’s path was close to crystal clear. A medical career awaited her, with a specialization in pediatric neurology.
But after graduating with a degree in biology from Cornell University in 2013, the Cincinnati, Ohio-area native worked as a public health fellow at her alma mater. Suddenly, her plans shifted. “That was where I became introduced to public health,” Leslie says. “It changed the trajectory of my career.”
