Third year honours health student Kylie Curnew excelling at StFX – StFX

October 11th, 2022

Pursuing a career in epidemiology with a goal of working in Indigenous health is one of the goals of Kylie Curnew, a third-year honours Bachelor of Arts and Science (BASc) in Health student from Hughes Brook, Newfoundland.

Already, she’s been the successful recipient of a Natural Sciences and Research Council of Canada (NSERC) USRA undergraduate research grant, and she is working as a research assistant with faculty in both the StFX Rankin School of Nursing and the StFX Biology Department.

Ms. Curnew says the BASc in Health program was what initially drew her to StFX.

“Coming out of high school, I knew that I wanted to work in healthcare, but I didn’t have a specific career goal in mind. This drew me to the health program because I figured it would be a good way to explore potential career paths. The health program also intrigued me because of its interdisciplinary approach. I liked that the program not only examined health from a biological standpoint, but also a social and humanistic standpoint. This really stood out to me. The uniqueness of the health program coupled with the welcoming nature of StFX, the tight knit community, and the small class sizes, sold me on StFX.”
