Papia Paul, MSSP/MPA’13

  • Public Health Analyst, U.S. Department of Health & Human Services

“I found the MSSP program to be the perfect balance of theory and application rooted in an inspiring and collaborative environment. While the coursework allowed me to explore the development and implementation of social policies, it also gave me the flexibility to specifically pursue my interest in health policy and reducing health inequalities. Furthermore, I learned a range of quantitative and qualitative approaches vital for policymaking and analysis. As a result, the program fully prepared me for my current role as a Research Associate with PolicyLab at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia where I work on studies focused on improving health outcomes among immigrant and refugee populations in the United States.”
