Rebecca Bobrow

Associate

Rebecca graduated from Cornell University in May 2015 with a BA in Government, and minors in both global health and communication.  At Cornell, Rebecca focused much of her research on the intersection between public policy and communication, especially as it relates to issues of public health. While completing fieldwork at the Kilimanjaro Christian Medical College in Moshi, Tanzania, she researched the impact of spousal communication on contraception use and family planning, and used her experience working at Moshi’s Women’s Education and Economic Centre (WEECE) to develop her global health capstone project on the value of peer-to-peer sex education for Tanzanian adolescent girls.

Rebecca has held internships at Save the Children, where she worked with the communications department to organize Fast-a-thon, a global fundraiser addressing the hunger crisis in the Horn of Africa, the American Society for Microbiology, where she provided editorial content for the Society’s public policy magazine, Cultures, and at the National Women’s Law Center, supporting the Center’s advocacy efforts with media and opposition research.
