EXCEL Scholar/Thesis Student
Who I am?
Hello! My name is Grace Comfort (She/Her), I am from Macungie, PA. I am earning my bachelor’s degree from Lafayette College in Psychology (B.A.) and Anthropology & Sociology (B.A.) as a double major, part of the Class of 2025. I plan to use this research experience to guide my future career path to graduate programs specific to public and community health.
What do I do in CHP?
Currently, within the Community Health Psychology Lab, I work with Dr. Mann on many different research tasks, including helping to transcribe interview data, using NVivo to qualitative code data, learning to contextualize larger themes, and overall gaining experience with mixed methods through my work on the Healthcare Experiences and Needs of Non-Binary Adults Study (HENNA). Overall, I am looking forward to working towards an honors thesis and a more in-depth understanding of how LGBTQ+ identity impacts healthcare experiences.
