  • Mason Barnard

    Class of 2015
    Mason Barnard is spending the next year at Cambridge University in the UK conducting research on the relationship between geographic population health outcomes and the deployment of health services in conflict zones. More specifically, he will study how conflict zones shape the building of infrastructure during reconstruction and how these impacts can have long term impacts on the populations they are supposed to help (for example, seeing if health outcomes significantly decline the farther away low-income populations are from the local hospital). He has also signed a job offer with Putnam Associates, a healthcare consulting firm in Boston, and will work for them for a few years upon his return from Cambridge. After that he will likely go on to pursue a PhD in public health, possibly alongside a JD or an MD.
