Sadie Costello, PhD, MPH, is an occupational and environmental epidemiologist at the School of Public Health at UC Berkeley, and Director of COEH's Targeted Research Training Program.
She was recently quoted in a New York Times article outlining how public health professionals and epidemiologists are safely planning summer vacations with unvaccinated kids. Dr. Costello, who has two children, ages 10 and 14, explained her two planned road trips and said, “It’s a balance between COVID safety and mental health.”
