On the first day of her first spring semester at Cornell, Chloe Hasund ’22 was entering the Introduction to Global Health class taught by Jeanne Moseley. Walking in, Hasund had a good feeling.
“It was in that class that I knew I had made the right choice in selecting not only my major but also Cornell as an institution,” Hasund recalled.
Hasund is a global and public health sciences major with minors in biomedical engineering and infectious disease. She said Moseley’s class was her favorite because it gave her an introduction not only to what global health is but also its mission and purpose to care for the health of billions of people in diverse communities around the world. She says Moseley was a close mentor and a role model.
“She is incredibly compassionate and intelligent, and she definitely transformed my HumEc experience for the better,” Hasund said.
Following graduation, the Cary, North Carolina, native will be studying the Ebola virus with Dr. Nancy Sullivan at the National Institutes of Health as part of an Intramural Research Training Award. After her research experience at NIH, Hasund plans to pursue a Ph.D. in epidemiology, with the goal of serving as an epidemic intelligence service officer at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
While at Cornell, Hasund was on the dean’s list and was the winner of the 2022 Global Health Case Competition. She was academic chair of Alpha Iota Gamma and had internships at FHI 360, CLEAN International and the American Society for Reproductive Medicine.
Hasund says she will miss the beautiful buildings that make up the College of Human Ecology and the college’s study spots, which she calls the best on campus. But most of all, Hasund will miss her cohort in global and public health sciences.
“From our first day together, they have challenged me, pushed me to my best and supported me.”
