2019 DSRF Award Winner Selin Ocal

Selin Ocal is a senior majoring in Biology and minoring in History, with a particular interest in the health of the incarcerated population. Throughout her summer, she aimed to elucidate the current implications of the Hepatitis C epidemic behind bars in North Carolina, and in correctional settings around the United States. She hopes her research will ultimately influence health policy decisions in Duke’s home state, and also inspire others to advocate for equity in this area of criminal health.
