Student Profile

Sarah MacDonald, MS ’15

Shortly before graduating with her master of science degree in 2015, Sarah MacDonald had the opportunity to present her thesis work at the American Academy of Neurology’s Annual Meeting in Washington, DC. Her research, conducted in collaboration with faculty member Dr. Sonia Hernández-Díaz, found that women with epilepsy were at higher risk for a variety of adverse outcomes—including maternal mortality—during hospital deliveries in the US. While at the annual meeting in DC she also gave print and video interviews for the website Neurology Advisor. Moving forward, Sarah will be entering the doctoral program at Harvard Chan with the support of a three-year scholarship from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research.
