Passionate about the health of women and children, Joanna was chosen as an Injury Prevention Scholar as part of the 4-Safety Program, a partnership between Hasbro Children’s Hospital and Dunkin’ Donuts, that seeks to control injuries in children and young adults throughout Rhode Island and Southeastern Massachusetts. Here she contributed to the development of the hospital’s 4-Safety public health program and took a course on child and maternal morbidity and mortality at Brown University.

She assists in the compilation and summary formation of data and provides timely responses to client inquiries and requests, applying lessons learned through her senior field experience at the Massachusetts Health Connector.
A Boston native and foodie at heart, Joanna enjoys finding new restaurants to try on weekends with friends, but swears she will never get tired of visiting her favorites.
