Lilliann M. Paine
As a native of the Midwest, I have developed a passion for promoting change to improve the community I grew up in. My interest in public health evolved over the years through both my educational and clinical experiences provided by University. My undergraduate and graduate school experience has taught me that positive health outcomes can be achieved when modern public health problems are seen through an ecological perspective. I am the premiere Master of Public Health Graduate of the Joseph J. Zilber School of Public Health. As one of the pioneering students, it has been a thrilling experience to partake in laying the foundation for future generations of public health leaders. I strongly believe that it is important to take into consideration the historical context of any health problem. By doing so, we can explore the fundamental causes of health disparities. All people have the right to health. Presently, I am the Family Living Educator for Milwaukee County Cooperative Extension. It is my task to strengthen the capacity of community food and health systems to build financial capabilities among economically vulnerable families in Milwaukee County. This effort will include digitally delivered family financial information, resources and support.
