Margolis Summer Interns
Class of 2021
Sarah Bond is a rising senior at Duke University, majoring in Public Policy and Global Health with a minor in Spanish. This is Sarah’s second year as an intern at the Duke Margolis Center, working on the Global Health Portfolio with Andrea Thoumi as her mentor. In 2020, Sarah worked on two main projects: 1) A memo discussing critical policy barriers and enabling factors to implementing the see-and-treat model for cervical cancer in Peru and 2) A rapid review on the implications of value-based care on health disparities in the United States.
In addition to her work with the Center, Sarah is pursuing an honors thesis in the Public Policy department and continuing work with her Bass Connections team. For her thesis, Sarah is examining what factors are responsible for some states eliminating the five-year wait-period for legal permanent resident women and children to access Medicaid and CHIP while others have not. On the WearDuke Bass Connections team, Sarah has led the project team in research of effective wearables, surveys, and incentives for a wellness initiative. In her free time, Sarah enjoys hiking, reading, and spending time with family and friends.
