Student Profile: Randi Hall (Part 3)

(upbeat music) Since June, I’ve been working with the U.S. Department of
Health and Human Services, Office of Inspector General. Our work within the Office
of Evaluation/Inspections is really to identify
fraud, waste, or abuse within these programs. Whether that means improper payments made, or providers not administering
good quality of care. My current project is working
within Indian Health Services. The opioid epidemic— it’s taken almost 70,000 lives
a year in the United States, and so HHS-OIG has been very dedicated to looking at the opioid
epidemic around the country, across different state Medicaid programs. So just doing an analysis of whether there are proper controls in
place for controlled substances and making sure that people
are utilizing opioids in a way that is not excessive and leads to misuse and overdose. The Harris School has
multiple faculty and staff who are dedicated to seeing
Harris not only grow, but continue to adapt and change to the growing needs of
its student population and also the growing trends
of policy making as a whole. They are always walking through the halls, always asking how you’re doing, always making sure you
feel supported and heard. That’s very important to have
both at the Harris School and as a graduate student in general, knowing that the staff
truly care about you and your well-being and your success. That’s something that I’ll take away long after I leave campus.
