Alana Eiland

Imperial College London Postgraduate Award - Public Health

Alana is from New York City and graduated from Yale University in 2021 with a B.A. in History of Science in Medicine. During her time at Yale, she focused her studies on the social and institutional structures that have led to racial health disparities in the United States. As a Fulbright scholar, Alana will be pursuing a Master of Public Health at Imperial College London. Specifically, she hopes to study and compare the racial disparities in maternal mortality both in the US and the UK. With the knowledge that she gains in her master's programme, Alana plans to become a public-health-focussed obstetrician-gynecologist who works to provide equitable healthcare and create effective healthcare policies for marginalized mothers. She is excited to immerse herself in the diverse city of London and work closely with local hospitals.
