Michael B. Clark

Michael B. Clark is an MPH student at NYU’s College of Global Public Health, studying Social and Behavioral Health, with a particular interest on the effect of displacement for the health of highly stigmatized populations. He recently returned from Kenya as a Fulbright US Student Researcher, where he was working with LGBTI refugees in Nairobi and Kakuma Refugee Camp. Michael’s research began in 2016 while conducting research on similar populations in Uganda through scholarships from Gilman and the Fund for Education Abroad. Since then, he has continued research and advocacy for sexual and gender minorities in East Africa and in the United States. Michael’s interest in displacement comes from the traumatic resettlement his family experienced as members of the Pit River Tribe of Northern California.
