Gabe Schwartz

I am trying to lead a happy, healthy, and just life. I also want to help empower other people to build happier, healthier lives for themselves. To that end, I've been a family health advocate at Health Leads Providence (connecting families to resources they need to address the social determinants of their health); a sexual assault prevention peer educator; a queer student organizer; and now, a public policy researcher. Trying to learn!

Things I got really into and then did research on:

  • determinants of participation in the WIC supplemental nutrition program
  • access to public transportation
  • community health worker programs in rural India
  • climate change's impact on infectious disease.


I like: making maps, botany, & infographics.
