Madeline Bishop is pursuing an MPH from Boston University with certificates in Maternal & Child Health and Program Management. She is a writing fellow for the Public Health Post and a research assistant for a study related to juvenile justice and mental health. Her areas of interest are many, but she gravitates towards the fields of adolescent mental health, social enterprise and global development.
Before enrolling at Boston University, Madeline spent several years road-tripping around the U.S., writing for Mercy Corps' Global Envision blog, and working as a case manager for homeless and at-risk young adults. She hails from the Adirondack mountain region of upstate New York and received a dual B.A. from the University of New Hampshire in anthropology and international affairs, with a focus on Latin American studies.
Ultimately, Madeline hopes to use narrative storytelling to build understanding in public health and bridge gaps between communities and policymakers.
