Joe Silva is a second-year Ph.D. student in Health Services Research. He holds a B.S. in medical laboratory sciences from the University of Rhode Island and an ScM in Epidemiology from Brown University. Joe's research interests focus on the intersection between infectious disease epidemiology and geographic health disparities.
