Degree

Class of 2023

Alice is a junior at Duke Trinity College of Arts & Sciences and is pursuing majors in global health and public policy, as well as a minor in medical sociology. She first gained interest in research through a neurosurgical research position at USC Keck School of Medicine. Through collecting data from EHRs, creating databases, meeting patients, and attending symposiums, she began to appreciate the real-life implications of health care research. Alice is also a Margolis Intern who, during the summer of 2020, assisted Professors Courtney Van Houtven and Brystana Kaufman on several research projects related to COVID-19’s impacts on long-term care facilities. In addition, she is supporting the implementation and evaluation of a caregivers training program in select VA health centers, soon to be rolled out nationally. At Duke, Alice is involved in the Student Wellness Advisory Council, serving as a liaison to facilitate communication about wellness between Duke students and DuWell faculty. She also assists DuWell with the promotion and improvement of the health services offered on campus. In her free time, she loves dancing, trying local eateries, and watching Dodgers baseball games. Upon graduation, she hopes to continue health policy research at a government health organization, as well as pursue a professorship in the further future.
