Julia Delano is from Springfield, Illinois. She is a Health Science major with an emphasis in Leadership & Policy. After graduation, she plans to work in medical sales.
“I chose Mizzou because I love the atmosphere here, I am a third generation student and it has always felt like home,” she says. “I chose Health Sciences and my emphasis area because I have always been fascinated by healthcare but didn’t want to go clinical. In my program, I can focus on my specific areas of interest in healthcare.”
Julia is on the service committee for the 2023 Mizzou homecoming. She also serves on the sponsorship committee for Mizzou RAMS, as the Vice President of Service for Sigma Eta Rho, and as a student coordinator for reservations and events for Memorial Student Union.
Why did you want to pursue a career in healthcare?
Healthcare is extremely diverse and always evolving. I love getting to continually learn and impact people’s lives in a positive way!
What is your best advice for incoming Mizzou CHS students?
It’s good to be uncomfortable! Get up and go try new things and meet new people. It may be uncomfortable at times and not easy but you will meet so many people and learn new perspectives!
What is your favorite Mizzou organization?
My favorite Mizzou organization is Homecoming. It is truly a once in a lifetime experience as we plan for over 60,000 alumni to come home.
What is your favorite Mizzou memory?
