Undergrad Project to Master’s Research
Pulse and Puppies
Kelsi Jessamine’s undergraduate “synthesis project” (in which students bring what they are learning into real-world scenarios) offered free pet care to vulnerable folk and their companions (featured on p.15 of Touchpoints Spring/Summer 2017). Her master’s research carries on with her passion to bridge the gap between marginalized communities and the health care system.
