Jennylee Swallow, MS

Health Infrastructures and Learning Systems (HILS) PhD Student
Precision Health Program Certificate Student


Jennylee is a Health Infrastructures and Learning Systems PhD. student. She earned a Bachelor of Science in Neuroscience from Westminster College, Utah, and a Master of Science in Kinesiology from the University of Michigan. She worked as a research coordinator in the Pediatric Orthopaedic Surgery Department at Michigan Medicine for two years, which led to her primary research interest in patient data registries. Additionally, coursework through the HILS program has increased her interest in Social Determinants of Health and the importance of incorporating these factors into future research.

As she prepares for her future research goals on improving patient health, she feels the Precision Health certificate program provides the opportunity to increase her knowledge of precision health and promotes networking among researchers in the field. For the first year of her doctoral program, her networking and conference opportunities were conducted virtually but gave her an introduction to precision health and how it promotes advancements in the healthcare system. The certificate program will be a phenomenal opportunity to network with individuals in the field and potentially lead to future collaborations. It also offers the opportunity to attend the Precision Health Symposium to increase her knowledge of the field and allow her to connect with others in the precision health field, learn from their expertise, and share ideas.
