Lucy Ramos, MPH '17

Lucy Ramos recently joined Planned Parenthood of Greater Ohio to serve as Director of Donor Communications and Marketing. Lucy earned her MPH to gain deeper knowledge in social justice and policy as it relates to health and health care. While at CPH Lucy gained reproductive health experience working with Dr. Alison Norris. She partnered with clinicians at an Ohio State-supported hospital in rural Malawi to develop a maternal and neonatal mortality surveillance system for the hospital's catchment area. In her new role, Lucy will combine her professional experience and the knowledge she developed at CPH. She joins Planned Parenthood at a critical time, as access to Title X funding is intercepted by public policy.
