Maggie Sullivan is a family nurse practitioner at Boston Health Care for the Homeless (BHCHP) and an instructor with the FXB Center for Health & Human Rights at Harvard University. In addition to being a primary care provider, she directs the Oasis Clinic, a multicultural immigrant-friendly clinic at BHCHP. At the FXB Center, Maggie studies and writes about immigrant health at community health centers in the U.S. In collaboration with the Initiative on Health & Homelessness at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, she co-developed and co-teaches a new course on homelessness and health. Maggie graduated with a Doctor of Public Health degree (DrPH) from the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health in May 2020 where she received the Albert Schweitzer Award for public service. Her dissertation research focused on improving healthcare delivery to immigrant patients at community health centers in Massachusetts. Maggie also works as a clinical consultant with the Massachusetts League of Community Health Center’s farmworker health program and collaborates with Partners In Health in Chiapas, Mexico and, previously, in Guatemala. She conducts forensic asylum evaluations with Harvard Medical School’s Asylum Network and recently helped launch a new asylum clinic at BHCHP. She received her B.A. from Barnard College in comparative religion and art history. She later completed a master's in nursing science at the University of California - San Francisco (UCSF) with a sub-specialty in women's health, followed by a fellowship in farmworker health in the Salinas Valley of California.
