Gabrielle Retta, Grant Writer

I am currently in my fourth year of my Bachelor of Science degree at McMaster University in the Honours Life Sciences program. In the last few years of my degree, I actively pursued courses that focus on the link between health outcomes and social determinants, such as socioeconomic status, in Canada and abroad. I am particularly interested in women’s health and early childhood development. I am looking forward to continuing to pursue my passion for science as it relates to community health and public health policy, which is what led me to IYHD. 

I am excited to get involved with IYHD in my capacity as Director of Development and to work with like-minded individuals striving toward a more equitable Canadian healthcare system.

Fun Fact: Outside of my undergraduate studies and IYHD, I enjoy playing volleyball, discovering new music, and spending time with friends and family.
