Emme Magliato (PC ’23) is an Ecology and Evolutionary Biology and History of Science, Medicine and Public Health double major from Poughkeepsie, NY. As a first-generation, low-income student, Emme’s passions lie in global health equity and access to care within underrepresented communities. Emme is particularly interested in urban health disparities due to race, socioeconomic status, gender identity, and citizenship status in the places she calls home: Poughkeepsie, NY and New Haven. In the future, she plans to pursue a medical degree with a focus on infectious disease and reproductive health. Outside of the classroom, Emme is a co-coordinator with Dwight Hall’s First-Years in Support of New Haven program and works to provide peer-to-peer health education in New Haven schools as a High School Liaison with the Community Health Educators. Additionally, she is involved with STEM and Health Equity Advocates to incorporate teachings of medical racism and inequity into undergraduate STEM curricula. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Emme serves as the Chief Operating Officer at PPE4ALL, a youth-led initiative that seeks to provide personal protective equipment to communities in need across the U.S. In her free time, she loves to sing, attempt to knit, and fall asleep during movies.
