Sarah is a global health expert, having had a broad range of healthcare experience in both industry and academia . She is a current PhD candidate in Global Health, and also possesses her Master of Public Health and Master of Healthcare Administration degrees. Her experience runs the gamut of working for a large Fortune 500 company to working for a small non-profit in the developing world. Her overall aim has always been to apply research outcomes to a "real world" setting. In her global health work, she has particular expertise in how the worlds of culture and health intersect, as well as the social determinants of health and how these determinants affect health behaviors and outcomes. Sarah has lived and worked in five different countries, with particular emphasis in working in resource-poor settings and working with vulnerable populations. She firmly believes that working in a limited-resource setting is the best teacher, as it forces creativity! She is currently studying collective action between NGOs working in maternal and child health in Haiti. She will soon be working on tuberculosis in Indonesia as a USAID Research & Innovation fellow. Her experience in both academia and industry has positioned her to take on a unique role that effectively combines best practices in both areas.
