About the Author: Elaina Lausic Hi I’m Elaina! I'm a fourth-year student at McMaster University in the Biomedical Engineering and Health Sciences Program, and am specializing in Health, Engineering Science, and Entrepreneurship. Mental health is something I’m really passionate about. I’m particularly interested in research about depression, anxiety, and loneliness. I am currently working on a project to measure and improve the mental health of long-term care home residents during the COVID-19 pandemic. In my free time, I enjoy going for hikes with my dog, and practicing yoga!
