Sweta Waghela

Climate for Health Health Equity Fellow

Sweta received her MPH with a focus in Global Environmental Health from the George Washington University Milken Institute School of Public Health. She is inspired to advocate for community-based health priorities, climate change, and health inequity to promote effective policies and interventions. Sweta worked on environmental health and public health programs both here in the United States as well as in Uganda and her capstone project was on the impact of indoor air pollution on childhood developmental delays in South and Southeast Asia. Sweta looks forward to making the world a more sustainable and environmentally friendly place and connecting with individuals to learn from them and broaden my perspectives to challenge the systems of inequalities that are ever present in our global communities. During her free time, she loves reading, traveling, and exploring new hiking trails and cafes in the area.
