Carolyn began her studies in bioethics at the University of Vermont where she received a Bachelor’s in Philosophy in 2014. Upon graduating, she began the Columbia Master’s program part-time online while serving in AmeriCorps, sitting in on hospital ethics panels and working in emergency medical services in both field and clinical settings. She focused her studies on public health concerns, her thesis topic addressing the modern American medical school education system and the prevention of chronic disease. Having completed the program, Carolyn now serves in AmeriCorps once again, working for the Public Health Management Corporation, a non-profit in Philadelphia. She presently coordinates their Hepatitis C program and assists patients in-need in gaining access to medication and treatment.
