Megann Licskai completed her BA with combined honours in Contemporary Studies and the History of Science from the University of King’s College. Before coming to Yale, Megann worked for a small health non-profit, which sparked a continuing interest in medical ethics and health disparity. Her senior thesis analyzed gaps in Canadian pharmacare and examined ways in which patients with terminal illness are overlooked by the current funding model. Megann has a strong interest in reproductive justice and has been working on projects ranging from lobotomy and sexuality, to Progressive Era anti-vaccination movements.

When not elbow-deep in reading, Megann is probably walking, writing letters, binge-watching TV, or thinking about food.
