We’re excited to introduce and welcome Katie Kraschel to our blogging community as a regular contributor.
Katie is a recent alum of the Petrie-Flom student fellowship program, where she wrote a paper on surrogacy regulation with a focus on the role of surrogacy agencies. She graduated cum laude from Harvard Law School in 2012, and will be joining Foley & Lardner LLP as an associate in its Health Care Industry team this fall. She is also a 2012-2013 Harvard Medical School Division of Medical Ethics Fellow. Prior to law school, Katie worked in the laboratory at Pfizer Global Research and Development and earned a B.S. from Mount Holyoke College in biochemistry. She is interested in patient care issues, particularly the influence of policy, technology and social change on the doctor-patient relationship. A board member of Greater Boston PFLAG, she is also interested in the biomedicalization of gender and recently published a student note in the Harvard Journal of law and Gender entitled “Trans-cending Space in Women’s Only Spaces: Title IX Cannot be the Basis for Exclusion.”
