Sarah Casey is a Research Assistant at the Center on Health, Risk and Society (CHRS). She graduated from American University in 2014 with a double major in Law & Society and Women & Gender Studies. Her true passion however, lies with public health and harm reduction. This past year, she worked on a meta-analysis of needle exchange programs assessing whether or not needle exchange programs impact or are associated with HIV related risk behaviors in participants. In the past she has volunteered and interned with Helping Individual Prostitutes Survive (HIPS), an organization focusing on providing safe sex supplies and needle exchange services to sex workers and intravenous drug users in Washington, DC. Sarah plans on continuing her work in the public health world by focusing on increasing access to safe injection materials and facilities.
