Alice is a physical therapist from Italy (BSc Physiotherapy at the University of Turin) with one year of experience in clinical facilities; she worked with patients, from children to adults, with neurological and orthopedical conditions. Alice has been a volunteer at the Italian Red Cross since 2013 and has volunteered on ambulances for seven years, also assisting her home country during the COVID-19 pandemic as a first aider. Helping and learning have been the core elements and inner motors of her life story to date, and consolidated them through Public and Global Health courses and independent readings.
Thanks to these experiences at the Red Cross, Alice has deeply understood that her vision is heading to issues surrounding the Global Health system promoting health and helping the most vulnerable. By looking at the local context and specific needs based on people’s personal and collective experiences, we could earn knowledge that can be transferred to actions and drive policymakers’ decisions to be more concrete.
