Across Harvard, cross-registration on the rise

Jessica Walradt, who is pursuing a master of science in health policy and management at Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH), spent last summer interning at the White House in the Medicaid branch and returned to her classwork curious about affordable housing and federal government programs.

“During my internship, I learned that an inadequate supply of affordable housing presented the primary obstacle to individuals receiving long-term services,” said Walradt, told the Harvard Gazette in a January 29, 2014 feature on Harvard graduate students cross-registering between schools.

In addition to her HSPH courses, Walradt also attends classes at the Harvard Kennedy School and the Harvard Graduate School of Design. “I really enjoyed the opportunity to meet students from other Schools and to hear perspectives that are not grounded in health care.”
