On the Certificate in Health Policy program
Emily Perish, MPP '16

"I decided I wanted to get an MPP, specifically from from Harris, where I could gain quantitative tools that would help me determine the types of health initiatives and policies that would be most effective in decreasing Chicago’s health inequities. This, to me, was the ideal way to have a broader impact on improving the health of communities in urban settings."

Emily Perish is now a Administrative Fellow at the University of Chicago Hospitals where she is continuing her research with Harris Professor David Meltzer. Learn more about the Certificate in Health Policy as well as other opportunities to focus on specific policy areas under Certificates.
