Meghan also holds a BS in Biological Sciences from the University of Delaware. Her research interests include developmental disabilities, teen driving, intentional and unintentional injuries, gun violence, and health disparities. During her time at CIRP, Meghan hopes to hone her skills in statistical programming packages like SAS and to effectively translate research into health policy.
