Excited to be joining the Children’s Defense Fund-Ohio team, Morghan Hyatt recently graduated from Duquesne University earning her Bachelor of Arts in Biochemistry with a double minor in Mathematics and Public Health. During her time in school, she allocated data for research initiatives pertaining to epidemiology studies, maternal and children’s health disparities, and epigenetic biomarkers for environmental exposure. Improving health equity for all is something that Morghan is passionate about not only in the city of Columbus but throughout the United States, especially for marginalized groups of people. She previously had the opportunity to intern at the March of Dimes as a Volunteer Engagement and Mobilization team member. It was there, Morghan had the pleasure of creating numerous research presentations to promote diversity, equity and inclusion within the organization and implement enhanced training modules. Research was formulated in a particular project that Morghan worked on for the betterment of volunteers working with the organization to receive displays of gratitude and appreciation. From these experiences, Morghan has developed a profound interest in improving health equity for all communities, starting with children and adolescents. In her free time, Morghan frequently partakes in reading historical fiction and outdoor skating.
