South Asia Center FLAS Fellow: Summer 2020
Anupa is currently a MPH/MSW student. Before coming to UW, Anupa worked for Adhikaar, a Queens based worker center that serves and organizes the Nepali speaking immigrant and refugee community in New York City and across the world. Anupa’s time at Adhikaar shaped her belief in the strength of grassroots organizing, and left her with a commitment to understand how resources can be better designed to meet the needs of systematically marginalized groups. Within the Department of Global Health at UW, Anupa worked as a Research Assistant for the IMAGINE Study, developing and piloting a social media-based group counseling intervention to prevent depression in pregnant and postpartum adolescents. She hopes to continue exploring interdisciplinary approaches to bridging mental health disparities and is interested in bringing together the perspectives of community members, care-providers, and policymakers.
