Haiti Adolescent Girls Network Coordinator
As a member of the Youth team, Lodz is responsible for supporting the Haiti Adolescents Girls Network, a coalition of international and Haitian organizations that came together after the January 2010 earthquake to ensure the needs of vulnerable girls would not be overlooked.
Lodz has more than a decade of experience as a public health professional. She has worked on issues ranging from youth homelessness to aging out of foster care to HIV/AIDS, and in Central and East Africa, Guyana, and Haiti.
While working in Rwanda, Lodz became interested in the intersection of reproductive health with race, class, and gender inequalities. She works to increase women's access to a full spectrum of choices and empower them to make informed decisions for themselves and their children.
Lodz has Bachelor's degrees in Psychology and Religious Studies from the University of Pittsburgh and a Master of Public Health from Loma Linda University. She is currently completing her certification to become a doula.
