“To conclude my undergraduate career, I will complete an honor’s thesis with the goal of characterizing how dietary energy balance impacts advanced age- and obesity-related cancer growth. Following graduation, I will pursue a master’s degree in nutritional biochemistry and a medical degree with the goal of becoming a medical oncologist. As an oncologist, I will use my knowledge of public health, nutrition, and cancer research to help defeat cancer”
