On May 22 the Taubman Center named Erica Brown MPP ’13 the A. Alfred E. Taubman Scholar and Alexi Pfeffer-Gillett MPP ’13 the Darrell West Scholar.
Erica Brown’s policy focus is the role that education plays in alleviating poverty in the developing world. This summer she will be working with Innovations for Poverty Action in Uganda to help design an intervention focused on women's empowerment, which will include a controlled trial to test the program. The aim is to improve health outcomes for women and children.
