Yasmine Abulhab 10F has been awarded an Earl Ubell Grant.

Named to honor the memory of Earl Ubell, whose distinguished career has influenced generations of science writers, the grant program recognizes and supports exceptional student work that seeks to make the scientific method or scientific findings accessible to nonscientists.

Abulhab’s project will examine “the health, environmental, and social implications of diets that include or exclude meat,” she says. She will pay particular attention to marketing and campaign strategies against and in support of meat consumption.

“I want to break down terms like ‘sustainable,’ ‘healthy,’ and ‘cruelty-free’,” says Abulhab.
