Maternal and Child Health (MCH) student Lita Lillibridge, a second-year Master of Public Health student with an MCH minor, completed a competitive Title V Maternal and Child Health Block Grant internship with the Wyoming Department of Health during the summer.

This fall, Lita is working as a policy intern at the Association of MCH Programs, focusing on policy efforts to strengthen maternal and child health public health systems.

Lita's passion for addressing women's health and reproductive health through policy and programmatic efforts reflects a commitment to making a positive impact on communities and advocating for a better future.
