Administrative Fellow

Current Fellow

Khadyja Sarr, MPH, Boston University

Khadyja Sarr, a New York native, graduated from Howard University in 2018 with a Bachelor of Science in healthcare management. During that time, she interned at the Department of Family Medicine at Howard University Hospital and gained a keen understanding of the registration process for patients. Khadyja was also a charter member and Co-President of GlobeMed at Howard University, an organization that assisted in bringing the value of public health to the forefront at her university. She was a certified peer educator for GlobeMed, which also gave her the opportunity to develop and coordinate workshops designed to educate and create behavioral change related to substance abuse, HIV/AIDS and hepatitis. 

After graduating, Khadyja pursued her Master of Public Health degree, concentrating in healthcare management at Boston University School of Public Health. While there, she interned at the Boston University Henry M. Goldman School of Dental Medicine during the school year. Additionally, Khadyja also interned at Mount Sinai Health System in the corporate supply chain department as part of the Greater New York Hospital Association (GNYHA) Summer Enrichment Program. While interning there, she worked on a project to address outstanding invoices for three out of the eight hospitals in the system. In the 10-week internship, she was able to resolve over 250 invoices valued at $2.25M.

Having always been passionate about community service, Khadyja is an active member of Sister to Sister International, Inc. Within this organization she has served as a mentor, panelist, scholarship recipient—among other roles throughout her matriculation of high school, college and graduate school and now as a young professional.

After spending nearly six years away from home, Khadyja is excited to be back, especially now, with the opportunity to work in an organization like Montefiore. Serving in the community that she grew up in has always been a goal of hers, and she is thankful to be able to do so with such a committed health system. In her free time, she likes to paint, travel and cook new recipes—as a self-described “foodie,” being back in New York City is a dream come true!
