"I have a master's degree in health sciences with a concentration in public health," Efe says. "The moment I stepped into the IU School of Public Health-Bloomington, it just felt right! I am passionate about health and continuous learning. I look forward to helping SPH achieve its mission and vision."
Among other duties, the Director of Special Projects and Executive Assistant to the Dean manages Dean Allison's active calendar, travel schedule, and related administrative duties. The position also leads schoolwide projects, and advises the Dean on university policies and procedures with regards to his various professional activities.
