Dhannya V Sasi
My name is Dhannya and I am a second year MPH student in the Health Policy and Management department at FSPH. I had such a great time running in the marathon with Team FSPH last year that I wanted to do it again!
This year, I am especially excited to participate because, as a second-year student, I know first-hand the benefit of summer fieldwork. My summer project was with the Martin Luther King Outpatient Center where I assessed the quality of care delivered by the integrated health system at the Sickle Cell and Substance Use Disorder clinic. The experience was amazing! I learnt a lot about the reasons leading to lack of accessibility to care for the underserved population of LA County. I was very fortunate to receive funding to pursue my work at MLK. I was so thankful to have had that experience that I want to do my part to make sure that any Fielding student will have the ability to do fieldwork anywhere they want. Please join me in supporting student fellowships for summer fieldwork.
