Graduate student named AEHAP Student of the Month

Anthony Nevicosi, a master’s of Public Health (MPH) student at the University of Illinois Springfield has been named the October 2010 Student of the Month by the Association of Environmental Health Academic Programs (AEHAP). The association highlights a student from an accredited program each month.

Nevicosi is studying Environmental Health at UIS. He says he chose the career after growing up hearing and reading about the global warming phenomenon. He was born and raised in North-Central Illinois and served 4 years with the U.S. Air Force. Nevicosi studied nutrition and dietetics at Illinois State University where he earned his undergraduate degree.

In his profile posted on the AEHAP website, Nevicosi praises the MPH program.

“It is a very flexible program according to my schedule. The online curriculum has its positives and negatives, but having the flexibility to study on my own time is a definite plus,” he said.

After graduation he plans to use his MPH degree to benefit his career with the federal government.

“By graduating with an MPA and MPH I hope to be a marketable job seeker, but also look forward to serving in the public sector again,” he said.
