Aiseosa Osaghae is a fellow at the O’Neill Institute.
Osaghae is interested in using the law as a bridge to sustainable prevention of noncommunicable diseases through the improvement of built environments. She would like to make nutrition, health, and wellness more equitable and work to ensure consumers are more empowered in their health and healthcare choices. In addition, Osaghae is interested in the interactions between legal policy and the structure of the healthcare system, which led her to pursue a legal career with a focus on improving access to healthcare.
While in law school, Osaghae worked as a student attorney at the Harrison Institute for Public Law and conducted research around viable efforts to increase supply chain transparency for the protection of food supply workers. She also served as an intern at the Center for Science in the Public Interest and worked on issues involving gaps in nutrition policy, improved menu labeling requirements, and water and beverage policies in public establishments.
Osaghae received her J.D. from Georgetown University Law Center. She completed her undergraduate studies at the University of Miami, with a major in public health and minors in anthropology, sociology, and human social development.
