Molly joined HAI in 2015 as part of the ACCISS Study, bringing her experience in global health communications, advocacy and campaigning to raise awareness and action to improve access to insulin.

Previously, she served as the Director of Communications for a youth-based diabetes empowerment organisation, AYUDA, Inc., and before that, worked at the World AIDS Campaign creating and implementing global mobilisation campaigns around HIV and human rights. She is also the Co-founder of the 100 Campaign and serves as a consultant and on various advisory groups that promote issues relating to non-communicable diseases, youth empowerment and access to insulin.
