she, her, hers

Sana is a doctoral student in the College of Public Health’s Epidemiology program. She earned a Master of Public Health and Bachelor of Science degrees in Physiology and Psychology, with a minor in Business Administration, from the UA. Interested in infectious disease epidemiology, Sana focuses on multidrug-resistant infections and how prescribing patterns influence antimicrobial resistance. She is also committed to the study of health disparities, women's health, and access to quality healthcare. Her previous research and clinical experience ranged from projects in neurology and cancer survivorship to health disparities. She plans to continue her research into the efficacy of treatment programs and health outreach initiatives to diverse audiences. In 2018, she helped coordinate the campus-wide 12th Annual Social Justice Symposium, a student-run public outreach event that disseminates important research and generates dialogue related to the intersection of social justice and public health. Sana enjoys spending time with her siblings, experimenting with new recipes, and working on a podcast with the Western Region Public Health Training Center.
