Scotland Summer Institute on Technology, Innovation and Creativity: University of Strathclyde and the Glasgow School of Art
Peyton Rodgers was born and raised in Marietta, GA and is currently a rising sophomore at Georgia College & State Univerisity. Peyton is majoring in Business Management and plans to declare a minor in Public Health in hopes of getting her master’s degree in Healthcare Administration.
Peyton is interested in combining her love of business with public health in order to become a Hospital Administrator. Peyton looks forward to further exploring technology's intersection with medicine at the Glasgow School of Art and the University of Strathclyde so that she can effectively serve her team and patients and provide them with the best experience possible.
Peyton is also passionate about the costs of healthcare in the United States. After her mother had life-saving brain surgery a few years ago that caused her family great financial hardship, she has been interested in finding sustainable solutions to lower health insurance costs for United States citizens. Peyton is excited to interact with Scottish citizens to learn more about the healthcare system in place in the United Kingdom.
In addition to the academic experiences at the Summer Institutes, Peyton is excited to meet and work with individuals from diverse backgrounds. Having never traveled abroad before, Peyton looks forward to exploring the culture and history of Scotland.
