Graduate Student of the Month
Congratulations to Carly Camplain, the Graduate Student of the Month for November, for the College of Health and Human Services. Obtaining a PhD in Interdisciplinary Health, Carly is an exemplary doctoral student in the Interdisciplinary Health PhD Program and in the Center for Health Equity Research. Given her own indigenous background and work with native communities in the Southwest US, she understands the importance of culture and community. She began her journey working toward health equity for indigenous peoples from a legal perspective. She received her Juris Doctorate at Arizona State University in 2015 and was a member of the Indian Legal Program, working with tribes in Maricopa County and across Arizona. She is now forging a path toward health equity through community-engaged research, paired with law and policy. She aspires to become a leader in the area of research at the intersection of indigenous and incarcerated populations, two of the most disadvantaged and marginalized populations in the US. Her planned dissertation research focuses on examining the impact of healthcare policy and policy changes on COVID-19 outcomes in US prisons. She is also pursuing regional research on healthcare utilization in tribal correctional facilities. Not only is her research extremely timely, but it is also sorely needed as there are few studies and policy movements focusing on these areas of health research.
In addition to her excellent research skills, Carly is always a team player in all of her work with the Center. She contributes to the day-to-day operations of several research projects and has been active in co-authoring a number of papers over the last two years. She is always collegial, eager to provide peer mentoring to others, and committed to making a difference. I can think of no one more deserving of this recognition as Graduate Student of the Month. Join us in congratulating Carly!
