Kendra Connolly

The Sustainable Development Goals Hub

Youth Participant

Kendra grew up in Wainwright and is currently living in Peace River for the summer. She attends post-secondary at the University of Waterloo where she is pursuing a Bachelor of Public Health with a Social Development Studies minor. Kendra has worked in community services, student leadership, health research, and public policy.

Kendra is passionate about SDG 3, Good Health and Well-being. Her focus lies in reducing premature mortality from non-communicable diseases like cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes, and chronic respiratory disease as well as promoting mental health and wellbeing.

Her project will tie in with her undergraduate thesis which will examine the impact of school based health programs on youth health behaviour. She will be working with The COMPASS Study – a research project focused on youth health behaviours of Canadian high school students.

In her spare time she enjoys road trips, rock climbing, and reasonably priced iced coffee.
