Dr. Katherine Standish completed her undergraduate degree in Sociology and Latin American Studies at Wesleyan University and her medical degree at Yale School of Medicine. After college Katherine worked in community-based public health research, studying harm reduction efforts among injection drug users, first in New York City at the New York Academy of Medicine and then in Tijuana, Mexico as a Fulbright Scholar. She then moved to Nicaragua, where she managed pediatric dengue studies at the Sustainable Sciences Institute. Back in her hometown of New Haven for medical school, she served as director of the student-run HAVEN Free Clinic, which provides primary care in a mostly immigrant neighborhood. While at Yale, she helped design a community health orientation to the city of New Haven for incoming medical students, and participated in redesigning the public health and cultural competency components of the medical school curriculum. Katherine is particularly interested in maternal-child health, lactation, immigrant health, and the ethical dimensions of global health and community health endeavors.
