“Heal the people, heal the world” is Dr. Triplett’s signature approach to addressing individual, sociocultural, and environmental health risks and serves as a strong foundation to promoting lifelong comprehensive wellness for all populations. Dr. Triplett continues to encourage education, leadership, and advocacy to further community mobilization toward healthy outcomes and positive quality of life. Her warm and congenial personality and imaginative approaches have allowed for honesty in her work toward social justice, health equity, and comprehensive wellness as priorities, not luxuries.
