Motivated by her grandmother’s dementia, Guard became involved in Students to End Alzheimer’s Disease. As an executive board member, she led successful fundraising and outreach efforts. Following her passion to be a scientist who works to prevent dementia and other diseases, Guard immersed herself in epidemiology to learn concepts that could connect her knowledge of biochemistry to helping people. She spent five semesters as a research assistant for the UMass Breast Health Study, exploring breast cancer risk factors. For her honors thesis, Guard explored the relationship between bisphenol A (BPA), an environmental chemical, and inflammatory makers in breast milk of nursing mothers. This research could further the understanding of breast cancer risk. To further her career dedicated to preventing neurodegenerative conditions, Guard will begin the master’s program in epidemiology at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health next fall.
