Gettysburg College health sciences Prof. Amy Dailey has spent her academic career examining the availability of cancer screening for underserved populations. However, her interest in understanding barriers to access doesn’t stop there.
Dailey’s passion for public health has proven to be a great asset for Gettysburg College. Over her three years as a faculty member, she has cultivated the public health component of the health sciences department, and was recognized by the American Public Health Association for her efforts to improve students’ information literacy with public health resources.
