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.
