Alice Chun , BA/BS '23
Class of 2023
Alice is a senior at Duke majoring in Public Policy and Global Health. Her experience as a neurosurgical research intern at USC Keck School of Medicine in high school first sparked her interest in healthcare research. As a 2020 Margolis Summer Intern under Professor Courtney Van Houtven, she supported the national implementation of a caregivers skills training program at the VA and research pertaining to COVID-19 policies in long-term care facilities. She has also been engaged with 2 Bass Connections teams: one applying human-centered design to enhance healthcare navigation for pediatric complex care patients and another supporting the implementation/evaluation of palliative care programming for rural caregivers. This summer she had the amazing opportunity to intern for FHI360 on a project team enhancing family planning services in LMICs. Outside of her health policy engagements, Alice works as a DuWell intern, serves as the Vice President of DefMo multicultural dance team, and co-founded KAjok, Duke's first Korean American student organization. Upon graduation, Alice hopes to continue health policy and implementation work in the government or non-profit healthcare sector before pursuing graduate education.
