I am a first year student studying for the MSc in Evidence-Based Social Intervention and Policy Evaluation. I am from the United States, where I was born in Tennessee. I attended university at the University of the Tennessee, where I obtained a BS in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering. As I am attending medical school after graduate school, my interests lie in health policy and social interventions affecting health and wellbeing. I am particularly interested in the effects of the Hospital Readmissions Reduction Program on safety-net hospitals and their patients. I am also more broadly interested in issues related to homelessness and access to healthcare.
