Maddy Foley

2018 Summer Intern

Maddy Foley is a rising senior at the Riverdale Country School in the Bronx, New York. She became interested in public and mental health during the summer after her sophomore year of high school while interning at the Kempe Center for the Prevention and Treatment of Child Abuse and Neglect at Children’s Hospital Colorado. Under the guidance of her mentor at Kempe, Maddy conducted a study evaluating the associations of state-level rates of depression and fatal opioid overdose in the United States, which is now a manuscript in review for publication. During her junior year, Maddy presented her research at numerous conferences and became very passionate about the intersection of mental and public health. She is very excited to be joining the Global Mental Health Program team!
