Congratulations to Olivia Hansell:

Olivia Hansell, an HBS major, was awarded an Honorable Mention for this year’s Samuel Oschin Scholarship! Olivia Hansell is a Senior majoring in Human Biology and Society. She actively seeks out opportunities to learn about the problems facing our health care system in an effort to provide advocacy for marginalized social groups. During her time at UCLA, Olivia participated in a research team that focused on the experiences of LGBQ students. In addition, she also spoke out on the issue of sexual assault which led to the creation of a pilot course this Fall through the Healthy Campus Initiative. She plans to continue to investigate structural and social barriers to healthful living in a career in Public Health after graduation.
