I am Daniel Opoku Agyemang, from Ghana, West Africa. I had my bachelor's degree from the University of Ghana in Animal Biology and Conservation Science (2010-2014). After a voluntary one-year service with Ghana Health Service in Maternal and Child Health, I enrolled in an MPH program. I got my Master's of Public Health degree from Ensign College of Public Health (ECOPH), also in Ghana (2015-2017). As a graduate student, I was the lead research assistant on a collaborative project between the University of Utah and ECOPH to reduce maternal and child mortality in hard-to-reach rural areas in Ghana.
Currently, I am a public health doctoral trainee at the University of Utah, working under Dr. Joseph B. Stanford. My research interests are the impact of lifestyle on fertility, pregnancy, and maternal health on child development, especially postpartum.
