Jeanna Campbell

EYPC Program Coordinator

Jeanna Campbell received a Bachelor of Science in Psychology with an emphasis in Biology, and Master’s in Social Work from Illinois State University in Normal, Illinois. While a Master’s student, Jeanna advocated for Community-Based Interorganizational Social Change to establish a food pantry on Illinois State University’s campus. The pantry is open to students who attend post-secondary institutions in Central Illinois. An impetuous for creation of the pantry was Jeanna’s personal experience with low-income, social service utilization, and chronic illness. Jeanna has had Type One Diabetes for more than 20 years. Her research interests include the intersections of chronic illness, ableism, biopolitics, culturally humble health and wellness, and health policy.
