Ms. Sun is currently pursuing her Masters of Public Health in global health with a certificate in leadership from the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. Immediately prior to starting her degree, she worked for eight months as a Program Coordinator for the Partnership for Health Advancement in Vietnam on projects relating to universal health coverage through primary healthcare, public private partnerships, and undergraduate medical education reform. In this position, she worked closely with organizational leadership and government, academic, and private sector partners. Prior to this position, Ms. Sun worked as a Research Technician in the Hung Lab at the Broad Institute, where she worked for two years to characterize the latent phase of M. Tuberculosis. Ms. Sun graduated magna cum laude from Williams College with a Bachelor’s degree in Biology and concentration in public health, and as a member of the Phi Beta Kappa and Sigma Xi Honor Societies.
As one of two Mississippi Delta Fellows working with the Children’s Foundation of Mississippi (CFM) this summer, Ms. Sun will conduct primary and secondary research on best practices and community priorities for children’s health in Mississippi. This research will result in a Blueprint for Children’s Health and Well-being and policy recommendations localized to the Mississippi context. She is interested in studying health inequities and vulnerable populations, health system inefficiencies, and design for social innovation.
