HDFS student helps patients battle cancer with yoga and nutrition
Jenna Karnofsky, an HDFS student interning with the American Cancer Society, developed a yoga and nutritional information workshop for cancer survivors and caregivers.
Karnofsky said she likes working with people, and that her internship with the ACS gave her the “best chance of being in contact with the community.”
