Ella Whitman is a senior Independent Major in the program for Global Public Health and the Common Good. Outside of the classroom, Ella has had the opportunity to intern at the Planetary Health Alliance at the T.H. Chan School of Public Health and pursue research with the Global Observatory on Planetary Health, focusing on the effects of endocrine-disrupting chemicals from plastics on children's development. The academic and co-curricular experiences provided by the GPHCG program have highlighted the complex determinants that create stark injustices in the world. Ella plans to pursue a career in health equity as the GPHCG program has ignited an inner calling to be attentive to the needs of the community and the common good.
