Curriculum Vitae


Dr. Daphne Fulton over 30 years of experience in community health, health education, and in public health administration.  She teaches with the thought of practical application of what they learn in class and worked with several major healthcare institutions to develop a working relationship between those institutions and her classes.  Students in her classes will meet patients with rare genetic disorders, work with patients and healthcare providers and research and design health education materials for patients with those disorders. She believes that if students can apply the principles they learn in class, then they will be successful. She further believes in mentoring students to develop the skills they need in the public health sector.
