CORE is delighted to introduce a new member to our team – Madison Lands, CORE Research Program Manager. In this role, Madison provides critical administrative and coordination support to CORE research projects. She also collects and analyzes study data and prepares results for publication and dissemination.
Madison recently graduated with a master’s degree in social work and a master’s degree in public health from the Brown School at Washington University in St. Louis, where she focused her studies on reproductive health and health equity and promotion. During graduate school, she served as a patient counselor and educator at an independent abortion clinic. She has also worked as a community health educator in both mental and sexual health. Her work is driven by the understanding that all people have the right to choose if, when, and how they have a family, and that systems should support people’s autonomy in exercising that right.
Madison went to high school in Denver but has been in the Midwest for most of the last decade. She spends her free time reading, home brewing kombucha, and walking her 4-year-old bulldog Annie.
