About Neha Gupta

Hi!

I'm Neha (she/her) and I'm a student at the University of Toronto. I am most excited by the legal and political worlds, which I believe are our strongest available tools to creating fair and just communities. 

As a student studying the health sciences, I am also interested in the intersections between law, politics and human health. Preventing gender-based violence and preserving reproductive health services are the two health-based policy issues I'm very interested in.

My Summer I project looks at how paediatric oncology patients in nations with universal healthcare plans access psychosocial support. My primary goal is to understand how policy, social networks and community norms influence access to a fundamental health resource in a subset of the world population. A secondary goal is to extrapolate the results from this project to more broadly understand how attitude-driven legislation and policy drive decision-making and ultimately impact society.
