Fistula Foundation Senior Program Director and UCLA Fielding School of Public Health alumni Lindsey Pollaczek was featured in the Spring/Summer 2018 edition of UCLA’s Public Health Magazine!

Many of them had lived with fistula for years and had no idea it was a preventable or treatable condition,” Pollaczek says. “So many women talked about the shame they experienced, being shunned by their families and husbands. One woman told me she would have rather died during childbirth than live with the devastating injury.”

The experience inspired Pollaczek to enroll in the executive-style MPH for Health Professionals program in the Fielding School’s Department of Community Health Sciences to learn skills related to program design, implementation and evaluation that she could apply to creating effective interventions.
