Caitlin Eicher

Caitlin Eicher came to the School looking to make a difference. She wants to understand how people’s perceptions of their local surroundings shape what they eat, how much they exercise, and other health behaviors. She was able to pursue her doctoral study at the Harvard Chan School thanks to the Julie E. Henry Scholarship for Maternal and Child Health. She was close to choosing another school for financial reasons when the scholarship came in. “It made all the difference in the world,” she says.
