What We Do
Research Assistant, Health Horizons
Upon finishing the 2012 IFTF summer internship, Sarah became the newest member of the Health Horizons team. A recent graduate from Loyola University Chicago, with a concentration in International Studies and Visual Communication, Sarah is working at the intersection of research and design to visualize new stories about health and well-being. She savors deep immersion into other cultures – seeking out the stories that will help advance cross-cultural empathy, understanding and collaboration.
Prior to joining IFTF Sarah led a research-based design project with Chicago’s Iraqi refugee population to create a book of Iraqi recipes and stories about hospitality that will inspire cultural exchange between newly arriving refugees and American volunteers. She has also designed campaign materials for Amnesty International where she helped to promote health as a human right. She is interested in the future community engagement and how new technologies can connect and empower everyone as activists for personal and community health and well-being.
