INDS student Kelsey Donnellan digs into her major!

News

Kelsey Donnellan is an education intern working in the Youth Garden. As a
rising senior at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County she is
majoring in Interdisciplinary Studies with a focus in community health
and nutrition. At UMBC Kelsey co-founded a community garden for the
entire campus community, which serves as a hub for service, academics,
research, artistic performance, and food. Originally from San Jose,
Kelsey looked to Veggielution internship opportunities to root herself
back in the area and create a synergetic relationship with the urban
farm community. While at Veggielution she hopes to engage with children
of all ages, increase understanding of edible perennials, expand her
gardening skills, and improve her Spanish speaking skills. In her free
time she enjoys cooking and reading, and if she could be any vegetable
it would be a radish.

Some examples of the specific topics that this class will cover include population screening for disease and carrier predictions, domestic and global issues for newborns and adults, and geographical distributions of disease.
