From 2015-2017, Neha Anand was student research assistant at the Yale Child Study Center. Her activities involved assistance with the content creation of this communications platform that is designed to represent the Early Childhood Peace Consortium (ECPC) and support its mission and partner activities.
As a senior in Yale College in 2016-17, Neha pursued and achieved a double major in Economics and Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology. She became involved with the Yale Child Study Center as president of the Yale UNICEF Chapter her junior year. In the spring of 2016, in collaboration with the Yale Child Study Center, she led Yale UNICEF’s 4th Annual Conference on Children’s Rights that focused on early childhood development. She was also involved in research at the Yale School of Medicine and a volunteer for the Arts for Healing program at Yale-New Haven Children’s Hospital.
Neha remains interested in the biology of early childhood development (ECD), the economic benefits of investing in ECD, and how they contribute to peacebuilding at both the local and international levels. She hopes to use the knowledge she has gained working on ECD with the Child Study Center as an aspiring physician.
We at the ECPC congratulate Neha on her acceptance to the John Hopkins University School of Medicine into which she entered this past fall 2017.
We wish Neha all the very best!
