The Our Voice Team
Thanks to our 2018 Summer interns!
Every year – and especially in the summer – our work is supported by stellar undergraduate interns. Our 2018 summer interns were:
Dr. King, PhD, is a professor of Health Research and Policy and of medicine at the Stanford Prevention Research Center. She leads an interdiscplinary research team aimed at creating cutting-edge behavioral and technological programs promoting the healthy lifestyles necessary for living long and productive lives. Her teams' borderless health promotion solutions seek to create health programs that break down barriers related to education, literacy, language, and computer knowledge and access.
Director of Community Engagement
Ann Banchoff, MSW, MPH, has a background in public health, social work, and international human rights, as well as broad experience in developing and sustaining community-academic partnerships. She has worked extensively with migrants and other underserved populations in the California Bay Area and in Oaxaca, Mexico, and has also lived and worked in Russia, France, Ethiopia, and Peru. Ann co-founded the Office of Community Health at the Stanford University School of Medicine in 2005, and served as its Director of Educational Programs until late 2014.
Kenneth, MPH, applies his experience in public health and graphic design to support Our Voice. He completed his bachelor’s degree in public health and his master’s degree in epidemiology and biostatistics at UC Berkeley. Prior to Our Voice, Kenneth joined Americorps VISTA and taught asthma management classes in the Oakland Unified School District. Recently, he worked at the University of Southern California, developing materials for California’s anti-tobacco campaigns. He is currently working on an art project with his grandmother called The Lola x Kenneth Collaboration.
Undergraduate Research Assistant
Vianna Vo is an undergraduate at Stanford who is interested in pursuing a B.S. in Human Biology and a minor in Spanish. Drawn by the citizen science approach of Our Voice, Vianna has joined the team as a research assistant in hopes of promoting health equity. At Stanford, she is currently researching the effect of a high-K diet on sodium excretion in an effort to improve dietary treatment for T2DM. Vianna volunteers with the Stanford Pre-Medical Association and works as the Team Leader for Volunteers Around the World with the goal of empowering underserved communities.
