Nicole Carbone is originally from outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She recently received her Master of Public Health in maternal and child health from the University of North Carolina. While in graduate school, Nicole worked on a qualitative study explaining why women drop out of prevention of mother-to-child transmission programs in Malawi and Uganda. She also collected baseline health data and planned health sensitization in rural Uganda. After receiving her bachelor’s degree from the University of Michigan, Nicole worked in Baltimore as a health and nutrition education program coordinator through AmeriCorps. In addition to topics related to birth and breastfeeding, she is very passionate about menstrual hygiene management and female empowerment.
