Eshane Wang is a second year master’s student at the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health in the Health Policy and Management Department. Raised in the suburbs of Maryland just half an hour outside of Washington D.C., she attended the University of Maryland, College Park, where she pursued her B.S. in Behavioral and Community Health. It was there where she discovered her passion for fighting mental health stigma and providing access to healthcare for those in need. After graduating, Eshane went on to work at a quality improvement non-profit organization in DC, which piqued her interest in healthcare management and encouraged her to pursue graduate studies at UCLA. Currently, she is a graduate student researcher at the UCLA Center of Health Policy Research and a research volunteer under the UCLA Department of Pediatrics. In her free time, Eshane enjoys exploring, hiking, and playing volleyball.
