How Science Nerd Overcomes Unpopularity and Saves Lives - Clara Soh

In Chapter 8 of 10 in her 2010 interview with Capture Your Flag host Erik Michielsen, health economist Clara Soh Williams shares how she deals with being unpopular as a comparative effectiveness researcher. Soh, who majored in molecular biophysics and biochemistry at Yale, follows her passion to research drug effectiveness compared to alternative drugs. Based on research into Vioxx and health implications, she believes she saves lives by providing patients and providers tools to make correct decisions when choosing medication. Additionally, Soh applies her passion for science and research to educate a vulnerable, marginalized population who could use the information.  Soh holds an MPA in Public Health Finance from New York University and a BS in Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry from Yale University.
