Stephanie Kang, HSPH

Stephanie Kang is currently a second-year Doctor of Public Health student at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. Born and raised in Nashville, Tennessee, she moved to Boston in 2007 for her BS in Behavioral Neuroscience at Northeastern University. Since then, she has worked with a medical organization across East Africa, performed drug discovery research for neurodegenerative diseases, and coordinated clinical research and quality improvement programs in hospital settings. Her commitment to closing the gaps in health and education led her to her previous positions as Program Director for two non-profits housed at HMS: one an innovative education program for underserved Boston youth and the other, a global health organization implementing community-based health projects in rural Haiti, while completing her MS in Global Health at Northwestern University. Stephanie has also worked in various global health projects in India, Mexico, and Kenya, as well as in Geneva, Switzerland at The Global Fund. Additionally, she is known for her six-hour karaoke marathons, cooking ridiculous amounts of food for friends and strangers, and petting every dog that walks by her (except service animals, of course).
