She also worked at Women and Babies Hospital at Lancaster General Health within the Performance Improvement Department and spent time in the neonatDSCF4985al intensive care unit. Last summer, She was an intern at the Hershey Medical Center within the biochemistry department. Kendra is now finishing her coursework at F&M, including CSC’s “Plain People and Modern Medicine” capstone biology seminar.

Kendra’s fellowship year will focus on public health research, and she will work closely with Dr. Katie Williams.
