Student Profile: Natasha Cholowsky
I completed my BHSc-H (biomedical sciences) and BA (social and cultural anthropology) at the University of Calgary. My research has involved investigating topics related to geriatric healthcare, mental health, and the socioeconomic and biological elements of radon gas exposure. I am passionate about animal welfare, child and youth mental health, and contributing to finding solutions that allow aging in place. I enjoy challenging myself and trying new things, and I'm excited to continue my education at SFU.
WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TO COME TO SFU?
I chose to attend SFU because I appreciated the opportunity to pursue a capstone project, while also gaining industry experience through a practicum. I'm also excited to explore the Vancouver area.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR RESEARCH OR YOUR PROGRAM TO A FAMILY MEMBER?
The MPH program at SFU teaches students the skills necessary to work in a variety of roles in health-related industries.
WHAT ARE YOU PARTICULARLY ENJOYING ABOUT YOUR STUDIES/RESEARCH AT SFU?
Although I will begin my studies at SFU in September 2021, I suspect I will enjoy learning with peers that are like-minded and have similar interests and ambitions.
