Kennedy Jensen, BA

Dartmouth College Lombard Fellow

Kennedy grew up in the Finger Lakes region of New York. She studied Biology, Anthropology, and Ethics, graduating with a B.A. from Dartmouth College in Spring of 2018. Following one year in Yellowknife as a Lombard Fellow, she will matriculate at Geisel Medical School. Kennedy is interested broadly in Planetary Health — how Earth’s natural systems impact human health, equity, and well-being. She hopes to one day work within both medicine and public health to address illness, particularly as it coalesces with poverty and oppression. In her free time, Kennedy enjoys running, hiking, and reading.
