Position title: Community Partner
About Me: I am currently a sophomore in college at Drury University in Springfield, Missouri. My major is biology, and my minors are in psychology, sociology, and community health. I am also pursuing a certificate in holistic health and well-being. I am looking at graduate programs in public health with emphasis on either infectious disease or maternal health.
What motivates me: I get excited about research that focuses on actively helping others by discovering new treatments or starting new community programs to improve quality of life. I love the idea of using scientific analysis to bring awareness to different issues of inequality in order to promote equity.
