Tufts graduate Laura Corlin targets world health

It took Laura Corlin a trip overseas to discover her passion for community and environmental health. As a result, just before graduating from Tufts, she’s been busier than usual presenting a thesis on a 2½-year asthma epidemiology research project, working eight-hour shifts, and serving as the campus director of development for a national group on health equity.

Corlin, 22, will be one of about 1,500 students graduating at Tufts’ 157th commencement ceremony in Medford on Sunday. The Littleton, Colo., native will earn her degree in biopsychology and community health as well as the 2013 Presidential Award for Citizenship and Public Service.
