Fiona McEnany lives in Hanover, NH and works in a biomedical research laboratory at Dartmouth College. She plans to pursue a PhD and work at the nexus of scientific research, advocacy, and policy. Her primary research interests are infectious diseases that disproportionately impact underserved groups. She will apply her background in health equity and justice to inform her laboratory foci, and hopes to use her dual background to serve as a liaison between the scientific and advocacy communities.
Fiona was raised in Portsmouth, NH and Franconia, NH and has been involved in activism in the state for more than 10 years. She received a Master of Public Health degree from Dartmouth College in 2019, and has undergraduate degrees in biology, political science, and peace and social justice studies. Fiona has interned at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in global health policy, was a 2016 Friendship Ambassadors Foundation United Nations Outstanding Youth Delegate Finalist, has been published in the Huffington Post, is a co-founder of ElectHealth2020, and was one of 60 students selected nationally to present her scientific research to Congress in 2017.
