From the article:

Maayan Sudai, an S.J.D. candidate at Harvard Law School, has been awarded a prestigious scholarship from Israel’s Dan David Foundation to support her work examining health activism from a legal perspective.

Every year, the Foundation identifies a set of contemporary issues in science and the humanities. This year’s subjects are drawn from the history of science, bioethics, and personalized medicine (the tailoring of medical treatment to individual patients). It then presents prizes to accomplished laureates, and scholarships to graduate and postgraduate students, in the year’s chosen fields. Past honorees have included several Harvard scientists, Harvard College alumni Al Gore and Yo-Yo Ma, and some 14 Harvard students in fields ranging from anthropology to physics; Sudai is the first recipient from Harvard Law School.

As an undergraduate at the University of Haifa in Israel, Sudai experimented with different courses before deciding to study law. “I immediately fell in love with it,” she recalls; “it provided a unique opportunity to do what I loved: expressing my ideas in a language of power, being creative, and effecting a change. I flourished.”
