Salome Da Silva Duarte Lepez

International Health Law, COVID Vaccine Policy & Biostatistics
Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, MPH ’22

Salome Da Silva Duarte Lepez (DSDL), MPH, studies international health systems, particularly in the US, France and South Korea, with particular emphasis on COVID vaccination policy during the pandemic. Her master's capstone project on COVID vaccination policy in South Korea detailed her research year in Daegu and Seoul studying COVID-19 policy. Before the COVID pandemic, her passion for medical research and international law led her to pursue her BA in Neurosciences and Government & Legal Studies at Bowdoin College (’19), to then research in neurogenetics at the Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School while auditing health law courses at the Law School. She has worked in science and diplomacy in the US, Europe and Asia, particularly South Korea where she studied at Yonsei University during her undergraduate years, and is fascinated in how health systems work from a medical, biological, legal and ethical points of view. An interviewer and filmmaker in her spare time, she has been creating short films since the age of 8, and directs short documentaries about political history, educational animated science videos, and professional interviews advocating for health equity, in the US and South Korea.
