Highlighting Summer HAPP Intern Bryce Mack

“My name is Bryce Mack. I am a Senior at UMBC. I will be graduating this upcoming Fall semester. I transferred to UMBC from Howard Community College with an AA In Public Health and chose to attend UMBC because they offered the administrative side of Public Health. I chose to study Public Health/Health Administration because public health is a field where you get to help people better their lives. It is a field where you can actively see that you are making a difference in the world. At my internship at Retriever Essentials I chose to study the Save-A-Swipe program where students can donate meal swipes to students suffering from food insecurity. The rate of food insecurity at UMBC is higher than any other college in the University System of Maryland. Now there are many different factors as to why this is, but it was shocking for me to see while conducting my research. No student should have to go hungry and the Save-A-Swipe program works to mediate this problem. I researched similar programs at other colleges and universities and worked to find the common threads and the divergent elements between the programs. With this new research available and the outstanding staff at Retriever Essentials the Save-A-Swipe program will become more extensive and reach more students suffering from food insecurity.”
