Hoping to impact the health of communities, I pursued a Masters in Bioethics at NYU expecting to focus on access to healthcare – but graduated with a thesis grounded in the idea that fixing our health problems through health care is only the band-aid solution. The real problems had to do with the broader system, including everything from the food system to the built environment. And the real solutions need to be human-centered.
