Meet the Shattuck International House RCAs
Shattuck International House is staffed by three Resident Community Advisors (RCAs). The RCAs are students of the Harvard School of Public Health and are knowledgeable about the resources available at HSPH and Harvard University. Throughout the year, they provide support to the residents of Shattuck and plan social and cultural events to foster a fun and supportive community. The RCAs are supervised and supported by HSPH Operations and the Senior Program Coordinator in the Office for Student Affairs.
Hi, my name is Allyson and I’m in my third year in the Ph.D. Program in Biological Sciences in Public Health, focusing on nutritional biochemistry. My thesis work studies on the effect of diet on HDL metabolism in humans. When I’m not in the lab, I’m probably baking a yummy dessert, biking around Boston, or counting down the days until my next trip back to North Carolina, which is where I’m from. I’ve lived in Shattuck ever since my first year at HSPH, and I wouldn’t have it any other way! I love the community aspect and meeting people from all over the world. I’m really friendly, so if you see me around, please say hi!
