I chose my major because I value the impact small changes in lifestyle can have on overall health, and I wanted to conduct meaningful research that could improve the lives of others.
- What I like most about FACS
I love that FACS provides a small atmosphere within a large university. The FACS faculty have been incredibly supportive along the way and my peers have been like family.
- Post-graduation plans
I have accepted a remote clinical scientist position with MB Clinical Research. My role will be to design, manage and communicate clinical nutrition research trials investigating the impact of nutrition on cardiometabolic health.
