The Schroeder Center for Health Policy is pleased to support graduate study in public policy through the generous contributions of Cliff and Lois Schroeder. Each year, the Center awards fellowships to students with exceptionally strong academic backgrounds who plan to pursue careers in health and healthcare policy. Among the current class of M.P.P. students in the Thomas Jefferson Program in Public Policy, the following students have been recognized with Schroeder Center Fellowships:
Ashley Gray, a second year M.P.P. student, graduated in 2010 from Vanderbilt University with a B.A. in English, Philosophy, and Public Policy. Ashley’s undergraduate thesis evaluated whether district-level physical education programs in West Virginia successfully reduced childhood obesity levels across the state. As a graduate student, Ashley is evaluating the benefits of services offered to breast cancer survivors by Beyond Boobs!, a non-profit organization providing support for premenopausal women. Following graduation, Ashley’s goal is to work as a health policy consultant.
Emily Uselton, a first year M.P.P. student, graduated in 2008 from Xavier University with a B.S.B.A. in Accounting and Finance.
