Carlyn Graham is a first year Master’s student, interested in studying health disparities in the U.S. Having grown up in Madison, WI, she left the great mid-west for the mountains and completed her undergraduate degree in Sociology at Colorado College. After graduating, she did a one-year public interest fellowship at a healthcare foundation in Denver, learning a good deal about grant making, health inequality and the non-profit sector. After completing the fellowship, and most recently, she worked as a Health Benefits Advocate at a non-profit, public interest law firm back in her hometown of Madison, WI. Through this position, she advocated on behalf of low-income, uninsured adults and families, helping them to apply for public benefits and navigate our complex health insurance system.
Outside of work and school, Carlyn enjoys backpacking, hiking, running and music. She loves to travel and has been fortunate enough to have had opportunities to explore parts of the world.
