What made you interested in pursuing dual degrees? I decided to pursue a dual degree after taking the Reproductive Justice Law Clinic, as a PhD student, with Professor Goodwin. In taking the clinic, I learned the importance of understanding how law and policy impact health outcomes.

How has the dual-degree program helped you achieve your goals? The dual degree program has helped me achieve my goals by providing me with a background in public health and the practice of law.
