MSc Public Health for DevelopmentContact Jennifer Lowe
I graduated from Pitzer College in California with a BA in Human Development and Sociology. I worked as the Director of Programs at Jiv Daya Foundation from 2012-16 where I led the Foundation’s health care initiatives in India. I received a Fulbright-Nehru Research Fellowship to India in 2016-17 where I conducted qualitative research investigating the financial, social, and cultural factors that limit access to care for pediatric cancer patients. After completing my Fulbright grant I worked with a Delhi-based organization called CanKids from 2017-19, where I led their Capacity Building and Research Departments.
Research interests or career goals
The goal of my existing research is to explore the underlying factors that prevent children with cancer from reaching appropriate facilities, receiving timely diagnosis and treatment, and receiving high quality care within hospitals in order to develop strategies to address these gaps.
Why I chose LSHTM/my programme
I chose LSHTM for several reasons, namely its unique programs, structure, and undeniable reputation in the field. I specifically applied for the MSc Public Health for Development because I wanted to be surrounded by a diverse group of other students who, like me, had worked in low- and middle-income countries. The diversity and incredible achievements of my classmates made the discussions and interactions much more meaningful and the most unique part of the course.
Since graduating I have been...
After graduating from LSHTM I joined a Clinical Research Organization called Resonance as the Vice President of Clinical Research where I am working on a wide variety of research projects as well as managing a CTMS.
I am willing and able to give advice to students with disabilities.
