Blessing Lawrence, MPH
Blessing is a Data Coordinator at Partners in Health and also serves as a Research Associate for Amaka Consulting & Evaluation Services. She earned her Master of Public Health in Epidemiology & Biostatistics from Tufts University School of Medicine. Her current areas of interest are centered on improving systems of care, addressing disparities in maternal & child health, and promoting effective contextualization and interpretation of scientific data. As such, she has conducted independent and collaborative projects in line with her interests.
Inspired by her experience as an international student, she is passionate about promoting innovation through diversity and inclusion- as is evident in her role in helping create the Tufts Black Student Alliance, serving as a peer-mentor for first generation college students, and vice-president of the public health and professional degree programs student senate at Tufts.
