GEH Ambassadors

Liz CarrHi! I’m Liz and I am currently in my third year of pursuing a MSW with NYU’s Silver School of Social Work and a MPH with a concentration in Global Health with NYU’s School of Global Public Health. I graduated from Fordham University in 2019 with degrees in International Political Economy and Communications. After graduating, I spent a year in Seattle, Washington as an Americorps volunteer working at a non-profit providing education services to immigrant and refugee youth and their families, and have since worked in various contexts with youth in the community. I decided on NYU’s dual degree program because it recognized the deep interconnections between the two fields and prioritized taking an equitable, collaborative, and decolonial approach. Since joining the program, I am part of the Applied Global Public Health Initiative (AGPHI) assisting on a project that uses a systems thinking approach to better understand climate-related displacement and food insecurity in Southern Madagascar. I’m also in my second year of field work for social work assisting with medical research at Weill Cornell Medicine. Outside of the program, I love music, cooking, and am an aspiring beekeeper! Please reach out with any questions you have!
