My name is Brandon Allen and I’m a two time Undergraduate Research Fellow for the National Spine Health Foundation (NSHF) Growing up with a father in the Air Force, I have moved all across the country and I have not encountered an environment such as the National Spine Health Foundation. While at Flint Hill High School, I decided to become more involved in spine health and intern at The Foundation. I am currently enrolled as a Biochemistry major at Connecticut College. Additionally, I was selected as a member of the Science Leadership Program. I have experienced the effect hope can have on a family and I am excited to help others by promoting the Foundation’s mission.
