Joanna Perez was a summer extern at the O’Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law.

Prior to joining the O’Neill Institute, Perez contributed to the research and writing for a report commissioned by the ACLU of Southern California that focused on impact of deportations on the immigrant community under the California Values Act, which aims to promote accessible healthcare to the undocumented community to mitigate the harm of deportation. Inspired to learn more about the healthcare system in the United States, Perez interned at Boston Children’s Hospital, where she provided support to their Office of General Council.

Perez holds a B.A in government from the University of Texas at Austin and is a third year law school student at Northeastern University.
