Elliott Liebling ’17 Combined AB/MPH
A New Jersey native, Elliott’s interest in Public Health was sparked in high school when he travelled to Providence to attend a Summer at Brown course called “Leadership in Global Health.” He arrived at Brown as an undergrad already settled on a Public Health concentration.
As an undergraduate Public Health concentrator, Elliott's work has focused on a research project with Professor Brandon Marshall on non-medical prescription opioid use and barriers to care. This research culminated in his Public Health Honors Thesis, “Access to substance use treatment among young adults who use prescription opioids non-medically.”
In addition to the research experience he’s gained, Elliott has added real world work experience with his internship at Care New England Health System. Elliott hopes to combine this experience with another subject he’s studied at Brown, Economics, for a career in hospital administration.
What has been the most valuable part of your education in the School of Public Health?
“There are opportunities at the School of Public Health to get involved with research as an undergrad that you don’t find at many other schools. As a junior I was involved in the day-to-day running of a major research project. That's been the most fulfilling part of my education at Brown.”
