Meet the Interns: Katie Morrison

This summer, SAFE will take a group of talented interns to Uganda for seven weeks, putting their skills to use on our latest projects. Meet one such bright, young intern!

SAFEInterns5Katie Morrison is currently a Master’s in Public Health candidate at Boston University, concentrating in maternal and child health. She had the privilege of traveling to Tanzania, Africa in 2010 with an organization called One Heart Source to help fight the generational cycle of HIV/AIDS and poverty. That experience left her not only inspired to help those left most vulnerable by a weak and unstable political system, but also opened her eyes to what it truly means to be human. “I am beyond excited to continue my journey to further ignite growth and change working with Safe Mothers, Safe Babies this summer,” she says. “I am thrilled to support SAFE in their mission to improve maternal and neonatal health through sustainable and participatory means and cannot wait to partner with communities to ensure all mothers and their babies have the basic right to life.” Apart from her passion for public health she enjoys the outdoors, playing soccer, swimming, baking, and the company of good friends and family.
