Colorado College Public Interest Fellow
Natalie Triedman joined the Colorado Health Institute in June 2012 as the Colorado College Public Interest Fellow. Natalie will work at CHI for a year as part of the fellowship program. She is working on a range of topic areas, with a particular focus on access and coverage for vulnerable populations. Natalie will also be assisting with GIS/mapping.
Natalie graduated from Colorado College in May 2012 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in global health. Her self-designed major integrated medical sciences and public health, providing her with a truly interdisciplinary perspective on health issues. Natalie worked with peers to craft a global health minor, which will be formally offered at the college next year.
While attending CC, Natalie took an EMT class and put this training to use while working at a free rural clinic in Namibia during 2009. Her international health experiences continued in 2010 when she studied public health and traditional medicine for six months in Chile. While in Chile, Natalie completed an independent study project that examined barriers in access to HIV/AIDS medical care for prisoners and other vulnerable populations.
Natalie attended Moses Brown High School, which is located in her hometown of Providence, Rhode Island.
