Tomi Oluwasanmi is pursuing her Master’s of Public Health in Epidemiology from the NYU College of Global Public Health and will graduate in 2017. She is currently the Immigrant Health Data Intern for Memorial Sloan Kettering Immigrant Health and Cancer Disparities Service.

“I am currently working on the Taxi Network Project with the Immigrant Health and Cancer Disparities Service at Memorial Sloan Kettering. The primary goals of this project are to link NYC Taxi drivers to primary care services, reduce the prevalence of health disparities in this specific population as well as inform NYC Taxi drivers on how to obtain and utilize health insurance. As a future public health professional, my experience at Sloan Kettering has given me the opportunity to participate in community health based interventions and learn how to develop effective healthcare solutions for both minority and immigrant populations.”
