Hey everyone! My name is Danielle Fitzpatrick. I am a second year Health Policy and Management student on the policy track. I’m originally from Long Island, NY and I graduated from Boston University with a degree in Health Sciences in May 2017. At BU, I had the opportunity to study abroad in India, where I was exposed to health disparities between social and economic classes. My study abroad experience strengthened my passion for public health. I became aware that health policy is pertinent to fix healthcare systems. I fell in love with Rollins during VisitEmory. I knew Rollins would be a great place to strengthen my public health knowledge and research skills while providing numerous learning experiences – inside and outside the class! Currently, I work as a Project Coordinator for Emory University’s Department of Pediatrics. As a Project Coordinator, I plan events that support PARTNERS Equity for Child and Adolescent Health. Not only has Rollins fulfilled some of my academic and professional goals, I’ve gained some amazing colleagues and mentors along the way. Please don’t hesitate to contact me. I am VERY excited to share my Rollins experience with you all!
Hi! My name is Michelle and I am a second year Health Policy and Management student at Rollins. I am on the health policy track. I was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY. I graduated from the University at Albany in May 2017. I majored in Public Health with minors in Bioethics and Emergency Preparedness, Homeland Security, and Cybersecurity. As an undergrad, I interned with the NY State Department of Health and was involved with various public health oriented clubs. I chose Rollins because it has an inclusive community that I couldn’t fund anywhere else. It also provides an environment and resources that allows you to grow as a public health practitioner. Atlanta is a city with so much to offer! In my free time I love to explore different restaurants or take part in events the Emory hosts. There’s always something to do and see! I hope to show others what Rollins can offer and share my experience!
My name is Sanah Mandviwala, a second year MPH candidate in the department of Health Policy and Management. I’m a dentist formally trained in India. Earlier this year, I completed my postgraduate certificate in Restorative Dentistry at the University of Michigan Ann Arbor. Currently at Rollins, I’m part of the Rollins Student Government Association as one of the two International Student Representatives and the Communications Chair for RmC. I like being on the go, which has attributed much towards my extracurricular activities. I am a trained track and field athlete and lawn tennis player (hit me up if you ever want to play a match or watch one). Finally, other than reading blogs on healthcare and keeping myself afloat with the latest public health issues across the globe, I love trying new restaurants, cooking, traveling, and meeting new people. For the things I hate, it has to be driving in Atlanta for starters.
Hi everyone! My name is Anisha Sudarshan and I am a 2nd year Health Policy & Management student at Rollins, on the health policy track. I’m originally from Michigan, born and raised in the Metro Detroit area. I graduated from University of Michigan with a double major in Neuroscience and Spanish and minor in Computer Science in May 2017. At Rollins, I served as the Secretary of Rollins Student Government Association, and I’m currently involved with the Humanitarian Emergencies Research Team (HERT). I spent my summer researching corruption in the Serbian health care system, and I currently work as an analyst intern with the Neurology department at Grady Hospital in downtown Atlanta. I chose Rollins because it would give me a chance to develop and intertwine my interests in global health and health policy, grow as a future public health professional, and find connections and mentors in the field — and so far, it’s been amazing! Outside of school, I love traveling (and studying health systems) in Eastern Europe, finding good food in Atlanta, reading, and watching tennis. I’m so excited to share my experiences at Rollins with everyone!
