She also has experience with Oncology, Immunology, Diabetes, and Epidemic causing Pathogens. Previously she’s presented at the 2018 Texas STEM Conference about the importance of vaccines in developing countries, and recently returned from the African country of Uganda where she was invited on a medical mission by Global Aid Network to deliver medical aid to rural villages that otherwise would not have had access to healthcare.
Additionally, she is an advocate for public health throughout the community and aspires to reform public healthcare policy laws in Congress through the Mayor’s Star Council of Dallas where we learn about local policies and partner with industry leaders, companies, and government in topics like healthcare, education, homelessness crisis, Diversity & Inclusion, Environmental Sustainability, City Infrastructure, and Business. We then organize events that allow us to engage out in the community to serve in these best practices.
Mary Blake aims to combine public health and travel to ensure travelers stay uninfected and well informed. To get on her mission, she has created a mobile app PathoSpy that allows individuals to look up their destination of choice, and provides information about health concerns in that destination.
