Hudson Hazlewood, MS '25

Hudson is a Master of Population Health Sciences student at the Duke University School of Medicine. Before coming to Duke, he graduated from Washington University in St. Louis, double majoring in Philosophy, Neuroscience, and Psychology with a focus in Cognitive Neuroscience, and Anthropology with a focus on Global Health. Hudson's research interests span intersubjectivity in health, social minoritization, and care for chronic and contested illnesses, particularly among minority and incarcerated populations. Hoping to pursue a career in law himself, Hudson authored an honors thesis entitled "Life, Death, and Law: Vulnerability and Agency in the American Right to Die Landscape." As a Margolis Scholar, Hudson hopes to expand his knowledge of policy alongside his studies in Population Health Sciences to better understand the ways in which law impacts the health of marginalized communities.
