Global Health

Netra Anand

Hey y’all! My name is Netra Anand (she/her) and I am a second-year Global Health student with a concentration in Sexual and Reproductive Health and Population Studies (SRP). I am originally from Dallas, TX, and completed my undergrad at Emory (Class of 2019). Before joining Rollins, I worked for refugee resettlement agency in Washington, D.C, where I oversaw health education and medical case management for newly arrived refugees. My interests include refugee and immigrant health, with a focus on sexual/reproductive health and justice. At Rollins, I am a member of REDI (Rollins Election Day Initiative) and the Emory Global Health Institute Student Advisory Council.  I also work for the Task Force of Global Health through the REAL Internship program. Outside of class, you’ll see me at a workout class, hiking, or trying to find the best espresso martini in Atlanta. Clearly, I love Emory and this city so much that I chose to return for my MPH, and I’m so excited to share my experiences with you!

Sejal Waghray 

Hi y’all! My name is Sejal Waghray (sher/her/hers) and I am a second-year Global Health student. I am pursuing the Community Health Development concentration and the Complex Humanitarian Emergencies (CHE) certificate. While I spent the majority of my life in Basking Ridge, NJ, I have also called Philadelphia, Atlanta, New York City, and (currently) San Francisco home. 

I graduated from Emory University in 2019 with a double major in Human Health as well as Political Science and a certificate in leadership. After graduating, I worked as a finance paralegal at Alston & Bird LLP while staying connected to public health by serving on boards of different non-profits. My public health interests involve the overlap between international law/diplomacy and preventing health-related emergencies in developing countries. Currently, I work for the U.S. House of Representatives and the Task Force for Global Health. At school, I serve on the executive board of the Rollins Student Government Association (RSGA) and am a teaching assistant for HLTH 415 (an undergraduate Human Health capstone course). 

When I am not working or studying, you can find me food-hopping around Atlanta (my current record is 17 restaurants in 1 day), hiking (because after living in NYC you start to appreciate greenery a little differently), and dancing (as a former competitive dancer, I love finding new dance styles and studios to explore)! Please reach out if you have any questions and I look forward to sharing more about my experience with you all!

Caitlin Farrell

Hello, I am Caitlin Farrell and I am a second-year Global Health student with a concentration in Community Health Development. I grew up in Seattle, WA before moving to Hailey, ID in high school. I attended the University of Idaho where I got Bachelors of Science in Microbiology, Molecular Biology, and Biotechnology. While at University of Idaho I worked in the Grieshaber Lab studying the molecular mechanisms of cell development in Chlamydia. Living in Idaho I have seen the struggle that rural communities face with having access to affordable and effective healthcare. That has increased my passion of returning to Idaho be an advocate for increased health promotion and education in the rural communities that I grew up in. When not on campus I can be found traveling back and forth to Clarksville, TN where my husband is stationed at Fort Campbell with the 101st. I enjoy hiking, mountain biking, and especially alpine skiing. I am so excited to share my experience here at Rollins and how many incredible opportunities come with living in Atlanta!
