Yveline Saint Louis is a senior from Tampa, Florida, studying anthropology and minoring in medical geography. Through this Fellowship, Saint Louis is interested in learning more about environmental health justice, climate action and sustainable development. In her professional life, she hopes to combine environmental advocacy and medical anthropology to help communities across the globe adapt to the impacts of environmental changes on the distribution of infectious diseases like malaria, dengue and others sensitive to climate change. In her free time, she enjoys reading, listening to podcasts and watching documentaries about outer space and nature.
“I am really looking forward to partnering with the other fellows and TESI to learn how to tackle environmental challenges in Gainesville and the world more broadly.”
