Mr. Michael B. Clark and Ms. Jenna Mote, graduate students at New York University College of Global Public Health have been selected as 2019 Gallatin Global Fellows in Human Rights. The program heavily engages and reflects on topics related to human rights. Recipients of the fellowship receive funding to work with human rights organizations on projects during the summer.
Mr. Clark’s work is focused on how stigma impacts the health and HIV vulnerability of marginalized populations, with a focus on sexual minority refugees and migrants in East Africa. This summer he will travel to Kenya to work with HealthRight International. Ms. Mote is interested in studying health inequity in vulnerable populations and developing solutions through practice-based research and analysis. This summer she will travel to Myanmar to work with UNICEF in conflict-affected areas.
