Lisa Landry, MPH Student, University of Texas School of Public Health
Lisa received her Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree from the University of New Hampshire, and has worked as a registered nurse on the Intermediate Care Unit at Seton Medical Center since moving to Austin in 2007. She has also volunteered for several organizations advocating for vulnerable populations, including Workers Defense Project and the Austin Harm Reduction Coalition. The intersection of direct patient care and social justice volunteer work led to her interest in public health. She began pursing her Master of Public Health in Epidemiology from the University of Texas School of Public Health in 2012. She hopes to use her degree to ensure access to reproductive healthcare for all women.
Lisa is working with the Texas Policy Evaluation Project research team as part of her MPH curriculum. She is assisting with management of the family planning clinic interviews and surveys.
When she isn't on campus or at the hospital, Lisa is likely biking around Hyde Park, dirtying every dish in the kitchen, or catching up on episodes of Parks & Recreation.
