As HealthCorps’ Senior Director of Programs, Sarah Martin is responsible for overseeing the Living Labs and HCU programs nationally. A Californian by way of New York City and London, Sarah received her Bachelor’s degree in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Southern California and her Master’s in Public Health from NYU. Sarah began her career managing clinical development and research in the pharmaceutical industry, leading multi-national clinical research trials for numerous high-profile products.
After a decade in commercial research, Sarah shifted her focus toward behavioral science, conducting research and developing interventions focused on school-based health and wellness programming. Sarah has worked on multiple NIH funded grant teams in both academia and the non-profit sectors and her expertise in school-based health and wellness programming has been featured in several publications and presentations, many of which include HealthCorps.
Sarah now lives in the Silicon Valley with her husband and 9-year-old twins. As a family they are working hard to shed their NYC edge and adapt a California lifestyle of relaxation, green juice, summers at the beach and winters on the ski slopes.
