Lizbeth Hernández is a Master of Global Health Policy and Management candidate at the Heller School for Social Policy and Management. Her interest in inclusive health-care systems stems from her personal experience with disabilities. Her domestic experience includes working at the National Disability Rights Network in Washington, D.C., in the public policy sector, and the public health department for councilman Curtis Jones Jr. in City Hall of the City of Philadelphia. Today, she is working at the National Research Center for Parents with Disabilities at the Lurie Institute to increase social media presence and community engagement from Spanish-speaking parents with disabilities. She hopes to create a safe online space for migrants with disabilities to voice their concerns and impact future legislation.
