Lotte Brewer

MPH in Maternal and Child Health

Pronouns: She/Her


Lotte is a first-year graduate student in the Community Health Science tracks with a concentration in Maternal and Child Health. She has a bachelor's degree in History and Gender, Sexuality, and Feminist Studies from Oberlin College. At Oberlin, Lotte wrote her thesis on incorporating alternative media, namely zines, into secondary school sexual health education in an effort to promote inclusivity and engagement in classrooms. Since graduating in 2019, Lotte has worked in the field of sexual and reproductive public health, primarily with the LGBTQIA+ community and adolescents. She has served as an educator, counselor, and administrator at Planned Parenthood and Howard Brown Health. Lotte currently works as a Graduate Research Assistant to Dr. Julie Maslowsky, assisting with multiple studies concerning adolescent sexual and reproductive health access.

Lotte's interests in maternal and child health include abortion access, adolescent access to contraceptives,  LGBTQ+ health disparities, Disability Justice, reproductive support networks (i.e doulas), sex worker safety, and the decriminalization of pregnancy outcomes. She hopes to use her time at UIC to develop skills and frameworks that can be applied to a career in public health education and professional development.

Fun fact- Lotte hosts an ongoing series of mutual aid bake sales for various abortion funds. Her favorite things to bake are scallion sesame focaccia and gooey butter cake.
