Fritz Graham is a first year PhD student at SP2. He lived in France as an exchange student for a year before starting his undergraduate degree at Pomona College in Claremont, CA where he earned a BA in Psychology. Fritz received a Masters in Public Health from The University of the Sciences in Philadelphia in 2012. For the last eight years, he worked with three different Philadelphia based social service agencies: ActionAIDS, Pathways to Housing, PA, and Philadelphia FIGHT. At ActionAIDS and FIGHT, Fritz worked with low-income individuals infected with HIV/AIDS. While at Pathways to Housing, PA, he helped chronically homeless individuals transition from the streets to supported, independent living. Fritz’s research interests include HIV medication adherence among unstably housed individuals, homelessness and strategies that improve access to housing opportunities for low-income individuals and families.
