Lili Liang completed her Bachelor of Education at McGill University after spending her teenage years in the Vancouver lower mainland area. Her involvement with humanitarian work during her undergraduate years sparked her passion for international and public health. She is currently in her last year of completing a dual degree program, to graduate with a Doctor of Optomery and Master of Public Health, at Salus University (PCO).
Lili served as the local liaison as well as the national liaison to the American Public Health Association (APHA) for the AOSA. She was the president of both the Salus CAOS Chapter and the Gold Key International Optometric Honor Society. Through her rotations, she was able to gain different perspectives of health obstacles faced by Americans from a public health standpoint at rotation sites such as the Indian Health Service hospital in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
Lili gained humanitarian experience abroad in Ecuador, Liberia and Haiti. Through the dual degree program at PCO, she will be finishing up her last rotation at an optometry school in Malawi to fulfill both her optometry and public health education. Upon graduation, she aspires to work abroad and put her unique set of skills, public health and optometric care, to use in the global health arena.
