Kelley Russell


I am a first-year Master of Public Health student. Throughout my undergraduate degree at the University of Guelph, I have found my passion for human health through taking epidemiology, pathology and nutrition courses. For the past three summers, I have worked as a Nutrition Student in a long-term care home alongside the Registered Dietician. From this experience, I learned I am interested in health promotion as well as policy and communication. Working during a pandemic has also sparked my interest in infectious disease and disease surveillance.
