Zachary Kaufman '08 has been awarded a 2010 Marshall Scholarship to pursue a master's degree and Ph.D in epidemiology at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, according to a College press release. Kaufman, a Truman Scholar, withdrew from his interview for the Rhodes Scholarship to accept the Marshall Scholarship, which he said in the release better suits his interests and goals. Kaufman first decided to pursue public health on a Tucker Foundation community service trip to Nicaragua, according to the press release. He has worked with Grassroots Soccer in Cape Town, South Africa since graduation and will remain there before starting at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine in fall 2010.
