Davida Farhat, MPH, Advisor
Davida received her BA in Anthropology from Washington University in St. Louis, with minors in Public Health, and Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies. She also holds an MPH in Sociomedical Sciences from Columbia University. Currently, she works in the independent school setting, creating and implementing research-based health curriculum for middle and high school students.
Davida is passionate about sexual health and access to healthcare, particularly for Black women and girls. She recognizes the impact that structural inequalities can have on shaping health outcomes, and she’s so excited for the possibilities Health in Her HUE has for awareness, advocacy, and access. She hopes that Health in Her HUE can help Black women take ownership of their health and challenge the current systems to recognize and address Black women’s unique needs and intersecting barriers.
She loves skincare and is always looking for a good mask recommendation. You can probably find her talking about, cooking, or eating great food. She’s on Twitter @DavidaFarhat.
