Dr. Amanda Fretts, KL2 Program Alumna

“One of the great parts of the KL2 program is that the scholars are from all different disciplines. The way I think about the optimal way to design an intervention may be different from the way other people think about it. It’s similar with grant reviewers: they could be coming from many different disciplines.” Amanda Fretts, PhD, MPH

“ITHS and particularly the KL2 program has been essential in this research. They have provided mentorship, a wonderful group of colleagues, and supported my salary and DCIS vaccine project to enable me to get this research done.” Sasha Stanton, MD, PhD
