Sarah Mahoney


Sarah graduated in 2019 summa cum laude from Emory University with degrees in Economics and Biology. After several years in a clinical research lab studying post-cardiac surgery outcomes of pediatric patients with connective tissue disorders, she shifted focus to health economics. Sarah's senior thesis analyzed the effects of a novel public health initiative on neonatal health. At Yale, Sarah is pursuing joint MD and PhD degrees with the understanding that clinical experience and knowledge in health economics serve as complements, each informing and improving the practice of the other. Research interests include maternal and child health, payment models, incentives in healthcare markets, and markets for biologics.
