MPH candidate, Nutritional Sciences

Jill spent her summer facilitating a collaborative project of the Chelsea Senior Center, Faith in Action, and the Chelsea Farmers Market. She managed gardens for the Senior Center and Faith in Action and developed intergenerational programs for seniors to interact with children from nearby Camp Gabika.

Part of coming to the School of Public Health and studying nutrition was to gain skills in nutrition education for all ages and those are skills that I've definitely been building here.
