Meghan Smithgall is the marketing and external affairs coordinator for the Center for Health & Humanitarian Systems (HHS) at the Stewart School of Industrial & Systems Engineering at Georgia Tech.

She develops new partnerships with organizations active in the health and humanitarian sectors and manages HHS communications and administration in the three core areas of education, outreach, and applied research, including the HHS professional certificate course series, the annual Health & Humanitarian Systems Conference, and other outreach and research opportunities.

A graduate of the University of Virginia, Meghan holds a BA in English and Spanish Literature, and last year she earned an MA in Spanish and Latin American Studies from NYU in Madrid. She has pursued her interests in education/languages, development, and the arts in the academic, business and non-profit sectors, including at the Teatros del Canal and CIFF Business School (in Madrid) and Sotheby's in New York. As a native Atlantan and an avid GA Tech fan, she joined the HHS team at Tech to increase the Center's outreach, mission and overall social impact through her communications skills, experience, and passion for reaching those in need.
