MSc Nutrition for Global HealthContact Nicole Cunningham
I graduated from Cornell University in 2020 with my Bachelor of Science in Global and Public Health Sciences and minors in Infectious Disease Biology, English, and Law & Society. During my undergraduate studies, I conducted research on breastfeeding including the relationship between obesity and breastfeeding and barriers to continued breastfeeding in Tompkins County, NY. I also interned with the American Society for Nutrition, Cornell Cooperative Extension of Tompkins County, and Cornell’s Skorton Center for Health Initiatives.
Research interests or career goals
My research interests include maternal and child nutrition, breastfeeding, and the relationship between infant feeding and infection. After my MSc, I intend to pursue a PhD to gain further research experience before pursuing a career in international nutrition.
Why I chose LSHTM/my programme
I decided to attend LSHTM because I wanted to learn from students with a wide range of backgrounds. Both the faculty and the students have extensive expertise in a variety of areas that makes classroom discussions consistently engaging and exciting. I chose the MSc Nutrition for Global Health because of its interdisciplinary approach and its focus on nutritional issues in low- and middle-income countries
