Serve, care, and improve the lives of others
I knew I wanted to be in a Health setting, but I did not want to do clinical. I then looked into Public Health and loved it. I learned so much during my undergraduate in Health Services Management, which made me realize what I wanted as a career.

Profile for Gabriel Doucette
While earning his degree through IU Online, Gabriel Doucette completed an internship at Opportunities for Positive Growth, a co-op that assists clients with learning disabilities like autism. Leveraging his background in guitar and vocals, Gabriel was able to work with the co-op’s musical therapist to find music the clients enjoyed and even transitioned therapy sessions to Zoom when COVID-19 required social distancing.
All of this was incredible real-world experience.
