Alumni of The University of Alabama
I am a senior at the University of Alabama with a major in Food and Nutrition (Nutrition Sciences concentration) and a minor in Biology, studying on the Pre-Medical Track. I am heavily involved both on- and off-campus, including roles such as the Honors College Assembly President, Emergency Department Scribe and Trainer, Alabama Action (community-based program) Student Leader, Good Samaritan Clinic volunteer, Nutrition-based research assistant, among other things. My interests lie primarily in the medical field, specifically the role nutrition plays in both the development and management of chronic diseases and conditions such as heart disease, stroke, hypertension, and diabetes.
