Medical student at Yale invested in social justice and health innovation
Hailing from Queens, NY, I am currently a medical student at Yale School of Medicine. At Yale, I co-founded a course on US Health Justice that seeks to train medical, nursing, and physician associate students at Yale on structural determinants of health inequity and advocacy. Presently, I also serve as co-founder of Systemic Disease, a project that seeks to address bias in medicine through storytelling and curricular reform.
I received my MPH from Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health as a fully-funded Sommer Scholar and completed my undergraduate studies at Columbia University as a John Jay Scholar. Previously, I have served as National Chair of the American Medical Student Association's Race, Ethnicity, and Culture in Health Committee and as a National Editorial Advisor for The New Physician Magazine.
I love to write, am eager to continuously reaffirm the social mission in medicine, and am invested in the design of more just and equitable health care systems and policy.
