Jade Hollars is a MPH candidate in the Maternal, Child and Family Health concentration at UNC-Chapel Hill. Her interest areas surround health advocacy, family planning, and fertility support. She is passionate for improving community outreach and education while addressing gaps between programs and community involvement, especially within rural and underserved communities and populations.
Jade’s background is in biology where she participated in 4 years of research at Western Carolina University focusing on the regenerative effects of keratin on human embryonic kidney cells exposed to hypoxic environments which mimicked the environment of the heart following cardiomyopathy. Her goal is to integrate these physical science skills into her public health research in the improvement of the health and well-being of mothers and families.
