Shenell Tolson, DrPH
Welcome Friend, my name is Shenell.
You may recognize me as one-fifth of the STEM-tastic STEMbassy crew; an online science show where STEM ambassadors meet to discuss their work and current happenings in the wonderful world of science. I am also the science-policy advisor for The B-SCI, and a member of the planning council for the STEMNoire conference.
I currently work as a biologist in human health and toxicology assessing the risks associated with various compounds introduced to the human body and the environment. I use social media as a form of science communication to educate and inform the community about basic STEM and public health concepts which include topics such as modified health behaviors and growing your own fruits and vegetables. I am passionate about engaging children of the diaspora, #MelanatedMunchkins in the STEM pipeline, and have authored several reading and activity books to encourage STEM and literacy.
I'm also the CEO of Kindred Consulting, a small, Black woman-owned global brand that aims to meet STEM and public health education needs in media, the classroom, and communities worldwide. Kindred Consulting is available to help non-profit, healthcare, government, and human service organizations train and execute STEM and public health objectives.
