Madeleine deBlois is a doctoral student in the department of Society, Human Development and Health at the Harvard School of Public Health. Her research interests focus on the social determinants of child and adolescent health. She is interested in the diverse and interactive ways that communities, families, schools, and out-of-school-time programs contribute to child well-being. Of particular interest are the potential ways in which schools could strengthen children’s resilience to adversity that exists elsewhere in their lives. Madeleine received a B.A. in Environmental Science from Wellesley College and a M.S. in Education from Saint Joseph's University. Before HSPH, she was a middle school science teacher and worked for Big Brothers Big Sisters as a school-based program coordinator.
