Pathways to Global Health with Maria Nardell
October 18 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Pathways to Global Health is an informal monthly series for Harvard undergraduate students to connect with global health experts and learn about their career journey.
We are excited to have Maria Nardell, MD, MPH, 2023 Burke Global Health Fellow, as our speaker.
Topic: Migration, HIV healthcare, intervention design, & community engagement
Maria Nardell, MD, MPH is a researcher in the Division of Global Health Equity at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and a hospitalist physician at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. She is interested in improving healthcare engagement for migrants and other vulnerable populations globally and locally. Her current projects focus on HIV care and prevention for migrants in South Africa, and she has also worked in Rwanda, Kenya, Namibia, and India. Her research has been supported by the Connors Center Global Women’s Health Fellowship (BWH), NIAID T32 Training Fellowship (MGH), a Harvard University Center for AIDS Research Developmental Award, and a Hearst Young Investigator’s Award (BWH). As a Burke Global Health Fellow, she will explore preferences for HIV prevention services among migrant men in South Africa in order to design a pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) program for them. In addition to her research interests, she enjoys supporting the professional development and wellbeing of students, trainees and faculty through mentoring, coaching, and storytelling initiatives.
