C19C Student Feature: Christine Hoang
Published: Thursday, April 21, 2022
The COVID-19 Committee (C19C) is a student-led committee that recruits and connects OUHSC students to COVID-19 projects and initiatives happening on campus. The C19C also recognizes student involvement in the fight to end the pandemic.
Christine Hoang, a MPH Epidemiology student, volunteered with OU Health in the early stages of vaccine distribution (January/February 2021) by entering COVID patient vaccine data into OSIIS. Christine contributed to a comprehensive effort to vaccinate over 25,000 of Oklahoma’s frontline workers and most vulnerable citizens. She was interviewed by News 9 in their Student Spotlight series to share my story of how the pandemic shaped her career and how it inspired her to pursue a graduate degree in Public Health, specifically Epidemiology.
