Noora Majid

Noora Majid is currently a junior majoring in community health with a minor in neuroscience at the University of Maryland, College Park. Noora works as a part-time vision therapist in a pediatric optometrist’s office, where she witnesses many situations that force parents to end treatment due to lack of insurance coverage. Such experiences led Noora to intern with the Health Policy department at the Children’s Defense Fund in order to better understand the effects of health insurance programs on children. She is currently researching and compiling information about the effects of the Affordable Healthcare Act on the health status of children throughout the nation. Noora aspires to attend medical school and hopes that through her experience at the Children’s Defense Fund she will better be able to serve and advocate for children as a pediatrician.
