Math Alum Joy Jiang receives 40 under 40 Public Health Catalyst Award

Boston Congress of Public Health’s 40 Under 40 Public Health Catalyst award recognizes 40 individuals as representatives of future leaders, entrepreneurs, scientists, authors, directors and more roles who inspire and catalyze an equitable world. One of the individuals that received this award is University of Waterloo Mathematics Alumni Joy Jiang (PhD ‘18) who completed her PhD at Waterloo. She continues to drive herself everyday with the one goal of improving women’s health globally.  

The University of Waterloo was able to provide a foundation for her career as she still reflects on her time at the university through the doors the experience helped open for her. The University is full of opportunities and challenges as Joy Jiang experienced as she gave her advice for current math students to be always open to new challenges by stepping out of their comfort zone and continuing to be a lifelong learner.
