Background & Bio
Mikayla received an MPH degree in Epidemiology from the University of Michigan, and also holds a Bachelors in Anthropology: Global Health and the Environment with minors in Psychological and Brain Sciences and Children’s Studies. Throughout Mikayla’s professional and academic careers, she has had many experiences in maternal and child health, particularly at Generate Health St. Louis as a data and evaluation intern and at Uganda Development and Health Associates as a Youth Resource Center intern. These experiences have developed her passion for maternal and child health, proficiency in data analysis and visualization, and have grounded her understanding of public health in systems and social determinants.
My Current Work
