Brandon McBay

Brandon is an MPH candidate in the Department of Social and Behavioral Sciences with dual concentrations in Humanitarian Studies, Ethics, & Human Rights and Women, Gender, & Health. His professional experience has largely been in the clinical research space, having worked in emergency and critical care contexts. Since coming to Harvard, he has most recently been exploring the effects of protracted emergencies on care delivery and the intersection of maternal care and health equity. Brandon aims to translate these interests and experiences into a clinical career that works towards health equity through socially-minded, evidence-based, and justice-oriented solutions.

Brandon’s work seeks to qualitatively examine the perceived barriers and challenges to COVID-19 vaccination among pregnant and postpartum individuals in Chelsea, MA.
