Vanessa Voller has won a School for International Training fellowship to collaboratively develop sexual health and reproductive rights training with rural Bolivian youth. Currently a Ph.D. student at the University of Minnesota, Vanessa studied in Bolivia as a CC undergraduate through the SIT program. After this fellowship project, which targets Bolivia’s high rates of gender-based violence and adolescent pregnancy, she plans to take a yearlong leave of absence from her Ph.D. program to complete the prerequisites and application materials for the University of Minnesota Medical School. Vanessa says the decision to couple a Ph.D. in the social sciences with a medical degree was informed by her liberal arts multi- and inter-disciplinary educational experience at CC.
