Eve Hiyori Estrada

  • 2021 Summer Intern

Eve Estrada is a rising senior at the University of Southern California majoring in Health and the Human Sciences under the International Health module and minoring in East Asian Languages and Cultures. Eve has lived throughout the U.S. and Asia, ultimately developing a desire to be involved in work for the benefit of the global community. Her interest in global mental health stems from the varying perspectives on mental health she encountered in her ethnic and national background.

Eve’s desire to learn more about the process of research and intervention implementation led her to work with Dr. Sapna Mendon-Plasek this summer. She is working with Dr. Mendon-Plasek on a project for a feedback mechanism loop across multiple tiers of stakeholders, which would facilitate engagement with data to improve delivery of services and patient outcomes. For this project Eve has worked on literature reviews to provide background for the upcoming grant proposal and is working on the early stages of the grant application as well. She has found the GMHP internship to be extremely fulfilling, further developing not just her research skills but her professional and academic interests as well.
