Bachelor of Science
Alexandra Van de Kieft is a junior at Cornell University majoring in Industrial and Labor Relations and minoring in Health Equity. Born and raised in New York City, her experience growing up in Lower Manhattan post-9/11 fostered her interest in health disparities and the social determinants of health. Following her own experience, she continues to explore injustices amongst communities facing adversity through her research with ReLateral. Alexandra aims to build upon her understanding of how individuals’ access to medical care, attitudes towards the healthcare system, and susceptibility to health conditions are impacted by socioeconomic factors and life circumstances. In her free time, she enjoys working with children in the communities she is a part of, exploring Ithaca, running, and spending time with family.
