Lillian is a third-year MPP/MPH student whose primary interests are in health disparities, social policy, and the intersection between public health and health care--namely, how understanding social determinants of health and "upstream" factors and conditions can inform and strengthen service delivery to ultimately improve outcomes and trajectories of communities. As a graduate student consultant, she has worked on a number of client-based projects on topics such as delivery of behavioral health services for foster youth, strategic planning for a local health care start-up, and medical-behavioral health integration in California. Prior to graduate school, Lillian worked for nearly four years in community-based research and consulting for public agencies, nonprofits, and foundations operating in the social sector. She is a Bay Area native and also went to Cal for undergrad - Go Bears!
