Meghan Elgee, BS
My primary responsibility for the Department of Population Science and Policy is to assist in research and community engagement aimed at improving health outcomes in central and southern Illinois.
I am currently attending Western Illinois University as a part of the Coverdell Fellows program. I am pursuing two degrees, a MS in Health Science, Public Health, and a MA in Community and Economic Development. Prior to graduate school, I served two years in the Peace Corps in Albania as a health volunteer. My primary focus was educating middle and high school students about sexual and reproductive health related topics. I earned a BS in Nutrition and Dietetics from the University of New Haven in Connecticut. I worked in hospital nutrition at Yale New Haven Hospital working with inpatients, assisting them with their dietary needs related to their medical conditions.
