" Being able to support others as they start to explore facets of their personal health is an exciting concept for me. Through the Millennium Fellowship, I will be able to develop my skills in scientific communication while uplifting those in my community and beyond. I look forward to seeing the impact this will have on improving understanding of health and wellness for all. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Print into Practice: Health Series
Despite the abundance of health information available online, traversing the science landscape to understand one’s health can be intimidating. Inspired by successful science communicators, I aspire to create a platform that contributes to making up-to-date education on health and healthcare readily available to all people. These pursuits will involve extensive research and consultation of scientific literature and/or current scientific experts. I intend to then create several social media posts, three educational videos, and one on-campus outreach event about my findings. Through this project, I hope to provide the foundation to begin a much-needed conversation on effectively taking charge of one’s health.
