Student Spotlight

#UMNMCH student Sara Hildreth (she/her, MPH 2024) reflects on her deployment experience with Hennepin County’s Babytracks and Immulink programs, which seek to address current disparities in infant vaccination rates. Sara helped develop surveys to understand the potential role of doulas in providing vaccine education. She also spearheaded the planning of many community events and clinics to provide vaccine education and administer immunizations. This April, they will be hosting their National Infant Immunization Week Health Childhood Event for community members in partnership with state, county, and community-based organizations.
