This is exactly what the Masters of Public Health (MPH) program at the University of Memphis did for her.

"Every course thereafter, has been of significant value to the fulfillment of my life's work," says Ballard. The training she received from the MPH program has bolstered her competence to carry out her mission to be a catalyst for change through consistent service to promote health and well-being in communities around the world.
The program has adequately prepared her to function as a global health consultant for Heart to Heart International.

On the local level, she is using the skills gained in the public health program to coordinate the Healthy Shelby Initiative managed by Healthy Memphis Common Table.
