Exploring Life & Business with Angela Frazier of Sisters in Public Health

Today we’d like to introduce you to Angela Frazier. Them and their team share their story with us below:

Sisters in Public Health was established in 2017 as an association to promote self-care amongst women at UTHealth School of Public Health in Houston, Texas. The goal was to create a safe and empowering environment to talk about being a woman in leadership, self-care, breaking down barriers and overcoming life’s challenges. Sisters in Public Health has now expanded to connect all women in Public Health across the country. We have a total of six chapters in the following locations: Atlanta, Baltimore, Chicago, Houston, New Orleans, and Philadelphia. We have grown our Facebook group to over 2.5K members, launched a merchandise/apparel line, and offer an annual $1,000 scholarship to public health students. The growth has been amazing!

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
The road has been smooth overall. Sisters in Public Health organically grew so we didn’t push for anything that didn’t come naturally. There was a need within the public health field of networking with all women in the field, lack of scholarship, and a sense of community. COVID worked to our benefit as many students wanted and needed that connection that they would get from classmates and school events. Sisters in Public Health was able to offer service(s) that met the genuine need.

SIPH is known for the annual $1,000 scholarship that we give to students in public health (masters or doctorate level) and we have six chapters that host events (events are open to all). What I am most proud of brand-wise is our SIPH merchandise that our community members wear so proudly. I would want readers to know about SIPH is that we are a large welcoming organization that wants to keep connecting women in public health. We are always wanting to expand and hope to have others connect with us. There is also no current membership fee so this is the perfect time to get involved!
