About Kristen: During her undergraduate studies, Kristen led a diabetes risk assessment and health promotion workshop series for the UC Irvine population. Inspired by the findings, she found an interest in epidemiology. She was fascinated by the fact that the data reveals significant correlations between behaviors/lifestyles and diabetes risk factors. Kristen hopes to continue to uncover unhealthy behaviors/lifestyles and predisposing factors in the ever changing populations of America. She intends to translate these findings into feasible and sustainable evidence-based solutions through collaborations between private and public sectors by connecting research, innovation, and business. Kristen also enjoys outdoor sports and creating healthy recipes.
