Alumni Movers & Shakers: Megan Klopchin
Megan Klopchin (MPH, MHA 2009) is the Vice President of the Richard M. Fairbanks School of Public Health Alumni Board and serves on the Executive Council for the IU Alumni Association (IUAA). When she is not volunteering for IU, she works as a Consultant in Policy Research in the Global Patient Outcomes & Real World Evidence Department at Eli Lilly and Company. This role has enabled her to travel to both domestically and internationally, including recent trips to India and Europe, and provides her the opportunity to view health policies throughout the world and determine what impact they will have on the future.
Throughout her term on the alumni board, Klopchin has been focused on increasing the value and opportunities for young alums to be engaged. “I believe that the more that alums support the school, the more the school will attract great students,” she said.
Klopchin will be working with the IUAA to coordinate events like the Early Career Alumni Happy Hour event at the Symphony last summer. “It was great, everyone was up and started participating in a conga line.”
If you have ideas on how you would like to see more young alumni engaged please do not hesitate to reach out to your alumni representative, Jayme Little at firstname.lastname@example.org who will share your ideas with Megan.
