Recent Health Law Alum to Pursue Harvard MPH
Rachelle Sico, a Loyola Chicago School of Law class of 2014 graduate, will be pursuing a Masters in Public Health degree at the Harvard School of Public Health this coming fall semester. Rachelle obtained certificates in Health Law, Advocacy, and Public Interest Law and served as the President of the Health Law Society and as a Student Attorney with Loyola’s Health Justice Project. In her last year of law school, Rachelle was chosen to be a National Albert Schweitzer Fellow, where she was given the opportunity to create and implement a health law service project that addressed health and its social determinants in vulnerable communities in Chicago.
Rachelle will be taking the skills that she acquired in law school to study issues of public health, increased access to care, and improvements in quality of health care at Harvard. She plans to explore innovative ways to create and implement sustainable health law and socially conscious health policy in her future career. In the coming year, Rachelle will be a student of the Law and Public Health program, which is housed within the Harvard School of Public Health’s Department of Health Policy and Management.
