Last week, HACC Professor Anju Singh officially launched her campaign for Dauphin County Prothonotary.

When asked what she would like to accomplish if elected to the Prothonotary position, Singh said she would like to focus on community engagement and educating the public on how the county government can serve them. Singh stressed that there is a lack of understanding of what elected positions like the Prothonotary handles, and Singh hopes to change that if elected.

This is Singh’s first time running for elected office, as she recently became a U.S. Citizen in October 2018.

Singh was born and raised in India and is the daughter of two doctors. She followed in their footsteps and completed medical school. Her residency program was focused on ophthalmology, a branch of medicine that focuses on the treatment of eye disorders.

In 2017 Singh founded the Unity in Diversity Foundation and joined the HACC faculty as an Adjunct Professor, teaching healthcare courses. She shared that she never stops viewing herself as a student, as she has spent more years as a student than she has as a professor. She added she will “always occupy a seat in my classroom… I want you to give me feedback”.
