Project Associate

Eden is a Project Associate supporting the LMG Ethiopia project. Since joining MSH in 2012, Eden has worked on projects in Ethiopia, Egypt, South Africa, Angola, Tanzania, and Uganda.

After 5 years as a volunteer, Eden decided to change her college major. She graduated from the University of Massachusetts Amherst with a Bachelor of Science in Public Health Sciences and certificate in Culture, Health, and Science. Eden lived in Geneva for a semester where she brushed up on her French skills, took courses in Economics and Political Science and interned with the World Health Organization Tobacco Free Initiative. She also completed the Summer Program in Epidemiology at the Harvard School of Public Health and various internships in global and domestic health education, policy, and research.
