Meredith Van Natta is a medical sociologist and postdoctoral associate at the Farahany Science, Law & Policy Lab at Duke University. Her research explores the intersection of citizenship and science, medicine, and technology policy.
After completing a master’s degree at the University of California Berkeley, Meredith worked as a case manager and planning and evaluation specialist at Operation Access, a non-profit organization that provides donated surgical and specialty care to low-income, uninsured Bay Area residents. This work drew her to the medical sociology program at the University of California San Francisco, where her doctoral research examined how rapidly changing health and immigration policies impacted noncitizen patients and their healthcare providers in the U.S.
