Working for a huge California food bank, Cindy Leung worried about many of her clients who were both obese and undernourished. Her clients’ suffering inspired Cindy to attend Harvard School of Public Health–what she calls the country’s “best program in nutrition, hands down.” Working with leaders from Harvard and elsewhere, she’s helping to transform food stamp policy and improve the health of millions of poor Americans.
