Kristen Smith MPH
I have studied public health since 2017 and joined the School-Based Health Alliance (SBHA) in 2023. Before joining SBHA, I was a graduate researcher at Brown University School of Public Health. As a Policy Associate, I will be engaging and supporting the functions of the Policy, Public Affairs, and State Relations teams.
I earned a Bachelor of Science in Biology from Tougaloo College and a Master’s in Public Health from Brown University, concentrating in Health Services. As a longtime advocate for health equity, I am passionate about supporting sustainable solutions to address social determinants of health and health disparities. I enjoy cooking, fitness, and spending time with family and friends.
