Winifred Edom, MS '24

Winifred is an international student from Nigeria and a second-year student in the Masters of Science in Global Health program. Winifred earned her BSc in psychology and a minor in Health Advocacy at the University of Kentucky in Lexington. During her undergraduate career, Winifred volunteered with the ONE organization as they campaigned for COVID-19 vaccine equity across African nations. Winifred's academic and professional interests center on strengthening existing health systems to offer quality care and financial risk protection. As Winifred transitions from a background in psychology to one in global health, she is excited to immerse herself in the field, learn, and leverage all the opportunities the Margolis Center has to offer. She hopes to make a change and create sustainable health systems where everyone has a chance to access healthcare without fear of impoverishment.
