2017 Alum Farrell Brenner Selected as 2022 Bloomberg Fellow

Farrell Brenner '17 was selected as a 2022 Bloomberg Fellow, a program of the Bloomberg Health Initiative at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. Bloomberg Fellows, who are drawn from organizations working on one of five health challenges facing the nation (addiction and overdose, adolescent health, environmental challenges, obesity and the food system, and violence), receive a full scholarship to earn an MPH or DrPH. Following their fellowship, they are expected to use their new skills to continue tackling these health challenges. Farrell, who holds B.A.'s in Women's and Gender Studies and Citizenship and Civic Engagement, will earn an MPH through her Fellowship.

Farrell currently works as a Senior Consultant with the Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network (RAINN), the nation’s largest anti-sexual violence organization.  In her role, Farrell designs and leads trainings on topics ranging from trauma-informed communication, to healthy boundaries and consent. She also provides guidance related to sexual misconduct policies and programming with the goal of helping communities reduce barriers to reporting, increase transparency into the response process, and mitigate the risk of re-traumatization.
