As an undergraduate biology major at the University of Illinois Springfield, Abigail Norville has been working with faculty members and other students to study Hepatitis C, a viral blood born pathogen, in the central Illinois homeless population. The students traveled to homeless shelters in five cities where they tested the population for the disease. Norville was recently chosen to present her research at the Illinois State Capitol during University of Illinois Undergraduate Research Day. Off campus, she works as a chief medical scribe for HSHS St. John’s Hospital in Springfield and HSHS St. Francis Hospital in Litchfield. She is the secretary for the UIS chapter of the Tau Sigma National Honor Society and is a member of the UIS Biology Club. Following graduation from UIS, Norville would like to go to medical school and become a doctor.

Leadership is lived at UIS. Every day.
