William C. Miller, MD, PhD, MPH

When I started my epidemiology training I realized that this was where I was supposed to be all along. I grew up without very much and I wanted to work in an area where I could help people who are disadvantaged. I’ve been fortunate to find some opportunities in my career where I know I’ve really helped make a difference.
