Terrapin Think Tank (TTT) is the first student-led policy incubator at the University of Maryland. For the past year and a half, TTT has been developing and advocating for community-centered policy solutions to significant health challenges in Prince George’s County. By taking advantage of the wealth of academic research housed at the University of Maryland, TTT has been able to advise the Prince George’s County Health Department on several key issues, including ways to connect residence in under resourced parts of the county with accessible health centers through public transportation and developing a curriculum on the principles of health equity for the Healthcare Action Coalition.
