Omar Saeed, MPH

Student, Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic medicine

Omar is a dual-degree medical and MPH-student at Ohio University with an interest in ophthalmology. His appreciation for ophthalmology stems from the comprehensive nature of the field, allowing for the full spectrum of prevention and management in diseases of the eye, that is balanced with the intricate anatomy and physiology of the region. His interest in public health stems from a deeper passion to promote human health through collaborative societal efforts while still maintaining an individualistic approach to medicine. This commitment to public health has been reflected through his research projects which range from the surgical training in developing nations to understanding the social influences of congenital ocular and facial anomalies. Omar hopes to integrate ophthalmology and public health in pursuit of a career in academia as a physician, educator and researcher.
