Greetings! My name is Alison Geason, I am native of Dallas, Texas. I attended Texas A&M University in College Station as an undergrad where I received my Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Sciences in2020. I am currently in my last semester as an MPH student at Teas A&M School of Public Health with aconcentration in Health Promotion and Community Health Sciences. Over the years, I have developed a passion for health inequities and disparities in the maternal and child health community as well as global health. I have had a passion for medicine since I was a little girl and I am excited to be able to merge my public health experience with my medical interest as my future career aspiration. Aftercompleting my MPH, I plan to attend medical school to focus on equity efforts for women of color in underserved communities and women’s health. In my free time, I enjoy working out while getting some sunshine to release stress,as well as spending quality time with family and friends. During my internship with FFBWW, I am thrilled to be a part of an organization that shares my personal and professional goals to dismantle disparities that are attacking women of color. I am ready to apply my knowledge and skills for the Black Women Deserve policy program as well as identify the gaps for evidence-based solutions for the optimal health of Black women. Additionally, I am most excited to be a part of an entity bigger than myself through research, education, advocacy, and promoting and prioritizing health for Black women in Wisconsin and beyond!
