Sofia DiStefano is pursuing her M.S. in Health and Wellness Management in the School of Health Sciences. Through the program, she is completing a project for the Alliance of YMCA’s and looking at the Chronic Disease Prevention Programs YMCAs throughout Massachusetts offer. Prior to arriving at Merrimack College, Sofia graduated from Boston University in 2015 with a Bachelor’s degree in Health Science and Public Health. She then went on to work at Massachusetts General Hospital in the Neurology Department as a program coordinator for two years. She has a passion for spin classes, bootcamp classes, reading, and trying out new vegetarian and vegan restaurants. Once Sofia graduates from the Health and Wellness Management Program, she would like to go on to work as a project manager or program developer for a public health department or school. She is passionate about prevention of chronic disease and hopes to someday create a successful program or work in policy development on public health issues.
