We are so excited to have Sarah Blake and Kate Mitchell on board as our new Knowledge Management Interns. We have already felt their contributions speeding up the pace of our work!
Sarah holds a M.Sc. in Gender, Development and Globalisation from the London School of Economics, where she wrote a dissertation on the history of global initiatives to combat maternal mortality, beginning with the Safe Motherhood Initiative. In addition to her work with MHTF, she has explored different dimensions of international reproductive health and development issues through work with the Communications Consortium Media Center (CCMC), Family Care International, the United Nations Research Institute for Social Development (UNRISD), and The United Nations Foundation.
Kate holds a MPH in International Health from Boston University and a BA in International Relations from Florida International University. For her ‘culminating experience’ at BU, she completed a 25 minute multimedia piece on the public health paradox of high levels of institutionalized deliveries and high levels of maternal mortality in the Dominican Republic. Before pursuing her MPH, Kate spent most of 2006 working for the Institute for Latin American Concern in the Dominican Republic. She has also worked on water and sanitation projects in Nicaragua and volunteered with HIV/AIDS orphans in South Africa.
