Emily Rubenstein is the program associate for the Health Innovators Fellowship. In this role, she focuses on strategic communications, leadership ventures, fostering Fellow collaboration, and other strategic projects to advance the Fellowship. Prior to joining the Aspen Institute, Emily worked in both the educational research and assessment divisions at the American Institutes for Research. Emily earned her A.B. from Harvard College in Social Studies with a focus field in Education Policy in the United States. Throughout her college career and culminating in her honors thesis, Emily explored the questions and conflicts that arise when working to simultaneously pursue multiple American ideals, such as individuality and equality of opportunity. Her continued interest in these tensions, combined with her longstanding interests in medicine and the public and nonprofit sectors, drive her in her daily work with the Fellowship.
