Keegan is a dual-degree student in the Center for Latin American Studies and the College of Public Health. He graduated with a BA in Anthropology and International Studies from the University of Nebraska in 2011, and has since been working in the field of education, public health, and international development.
Keegan has spent significant time in Latin America and the Caribbean, particularly in the Dominican Republic, Haiti, and Guatemala. His research interests revolve around global family and child health, traditional medicine and perceptions of health, indigenous communities and access to healthcare, nutrition and chronic diseases, the psycho-social health of adolescents and family health culture and lay health worker programs.
Keegan hopes to continue his previous field work in the highlands of Guatemala and begin studying the Kaqchikel language, its influence on healthcare access, and its general role in Guatemalan health culture.
