Rupal Sanghvi specializes in program evaluation, which means asking the question "does this work?" and then working with implementing programs to define meaningful metrics to address the question. Recently she founded HealthxDesign, an initiative to explore and communicate the role of design - including the built environment - toimprove health and other social justice outcomes. HealthxDesign is currently housed within the Public Health Institute, where Ms. Sanghvi is a Principal Investigator. Ms. Sanghvi is also a consultant for the World Health Organization.

Prior to this, she was a Senior Evaluation Officer with International Planned Parenthood's Western Hemisphere Regional Office, focusing on the development and evaluation of programming for improving access to health services for disadvantaged youth, as well as assessing "what works" for addressing gender-based violence and HIV prevention. Ms. Sanghvi has over 14 years of experience in the field of evaluation, and holds a Masters of Public Health from the University of Michigan.
