Brittaney obtained a Masters of Public Health (MPH) from Washington University in St. Louis and a Bachelors of Arts (BA) in Sociology from Spelman College and is a Certified Communicator in Public Health by the National Public Health Information Coalition (NPHIC). She’s also currently examining the effects of various communication strategies on health behavior change as a doctoral student in the Department of Communication at Georgia State University.
