DiSH lab alumna Emma recently matched with the Johns Hopkins University/National Institutes of Health Genetic Counseling Training Program! Emma was part of the DiSH Lab from 2016-2018. As a study coordinator, she helped lead several projects and gained valuable research and leadership skills that she has continued to use in her career. Since leaving the DiSH Lab, she has continued to research health disparities, health communication, eating behavior, stress, and stigma as a post-baccalaureate fellow at the National Institutes of Health.
Emma has completed the National Institutes of Health’s Post-baccalaureate Intramural Research Training Award program! The two-year program has provided exceptional opportunities for Emma during her gap years, including mentorship from talented scientists, research skills development, participation in volunteer and special interest groups, and attendance at conferences and talks. Emma would recommend the program to any student looking for a fulfilling gap year experience! Congrats, Emma!
