Julia Sawatzky

Canadian

I am joining the MPP cohort after completing an MSc in Global Health Science and Epidemiology at the University of Oxford. I am also a medical student (on leave from my clinical studies) and hope to integrate the practice of medicine with health policy work and global health advocacy throughout my career. I am undertaking the MPP in order to broaden my understanding and skillset around how evidence is applied to policy, and the economic, legal and philosophical underpinnings of how policy is made and implemented. I'm looking forward to learning from faculty and classmates about how best to show up and serve the world in this unique global moment.
