    In public health we are frequently pulled in multiple directions and oftentimes lose our way and our sense of purpose. It’s like getting stuck in a giant hairball! In order to take care of ourselves and better serve others, it is important to pause and explore why we choose to do the work we do. This webinar will guide you through a process of creating your career philosophy which will help you step out of the giant hairball, and navigate the complexity of the public health profession.

    This webinar, co-hosted by the School of Public Health (SPH) Office of Alumni Relations and the Career and Professional Development Center, is presented by Vic Massaglia. Vic is the Director of the Career & Professional Development Center for the School of Public Health at the University of Minnesota. (He's also a MPHA member!) He has extensive experience in leadership, career, and organizational development in both the public and private sectors. He’s on a mission to connect with and inspire people in transition so they can make a positive impact in the world. He approaches his work with compassion by developing his craft of facilitation, coaching, and teaching so people will discover their gifts and become their best selves. He is deeply passionate about social justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion and believes he is at his best when he is serving others. This webinar will be recorded and available online following the presentation. 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm Central.

    Audience: This webinar is designed for public health professionals, although students and professionals from other industries are welcome to join. SPH alumni, students and friends of SPH are especially encouraged to attend.
