Larissa is in the final semester of her BSc in Health Studies degree at the University of Waterloo. Her interest in health research was sparked when she worked at interRAI for a co-op position. Since that time, she has pursued other research opportunities for co-op placements including conducting a systematic review on foodborne illness and another on frailty. She has recently been accepted to the accelerated MSc in Public Health program at UWaterloo, under the supervision of Mark Oremus.
Larissa maintains her wellness by riding motocross and spending time with her niece and nephew.
