BIO

Joyline Chepkorir is an honors college student pursuing Bachelor of Science in nursing at Michigan State University. She is passionate about promotion of quality and accessible healthcare for all people and has dedicated her time to volunteering in marginalized communities. In summer 2017, she did a community needs assessment and found that there was a compelling necessity for raising awareness on breast and cervical cancer among women in rural areas at Kericho and Bomet counties in Kenya. Consequently, she founded a non-profit organization called the Mwangaza Cancer Initiative. She is currently a member of Relay for Life, a club that works with the American Cancer Society (ACS), to raise cancer awareness in communities. She also works as a research assistant in SMART study, a research study to test effectiveness of reflexology and meditation in improving quality of life for women undergoing late stage breast cancer chemotherapy.
