Environmental Justice

Jacqline Wolf Tice has spent much of her life looking to understand the relationship between nature and human nature.  As an EP student focused on public health, she was able to link her concerns about social justice, environment and health and wellness.
While in Bethlehem, she worked on a food security project, surveying local farmers’ markets to find ways to connect neighborhood residents with access to fresh produce.  As part of her thesis research, she studied the extraction industry in North Dakota and its consequences for the environment and people there.  Closer to campus, she analyzed the effects of fracking in a similar way.
After graduation, Wolf Tice hopes to continue to make a difference by collaborating with Indian Health Services or the Food and Drug Administration to change the composition of government-supplied food rations.
