Elizabeth Myung Sook Krause directs community investments for women's health at St. David's Foundation in Austin.
Her work will be done when there is equity in perinatal outcomes, all women have easy access to reproductive health care, and women of color are at the center of positive change.
A calling to women's health was sparked when Elizabeth was an undergraduate at Smith where she served as the lead for the campus peer health promotion network.
She went on to earn a master's degree in social and behavioral sciences from the Harvard T. H. Chan School of Public Health.
Elizabeth has worked at the Connecticut Health Foundation and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
She is on the board of the national Asian and Pacific Islander American Health Forum and volunteers as an Affordable Care Act Certified Application Counselor with Foundation Communities in Austin.
As a mother of twins, Elizabeth has experienced high risk pregnancy and resists the tendency to put her own health last on a daily basis.
