Kelsey Willardson

2016-17 Latham Fellow
Majoring in Health and Human Physiology

I am a senior undergraduate at the University of Iowa, studying Health and Human Physiology. I plan to pursue my master's degree in Public Health and am currently doing research with the Iowa College of Public Health Center for Emerging Infectious Disease, assessing disease risk for those with outdoor and animal exposures, as well as cultivating protocols for using dried blood spots to test for zoonotic diseases. My time at Iowa has inspired me to use my love of science to help others and I am very excited for my future within public health.
