Sarah Malik

Major: Biology

Sarak Malik Photo I am currently a senior studying biology, with minors in chemistry and Health, Medicine and Society. As a pre-med student, I've always had interests in medicine. Due to experiences introduced by Stony Brook, I am able to look at medicine through a new lens. As a JFEW-SUNY Scholar and the Director of Health Outreach of TEAM HBV SBU, my interests in global medicine peaked when I realized that there are social medical issues in other parts of the world in which I can play a role in the solution. My exposure to Medicines Sans Frontiers/Doctors without Borders and my internship at the International Research Institute of Columbia University enabled me to see the logistics of a public health project. I hope to create, plan and execute a public health outreach project of my own. In addition, I was an undergraduate General Chemistry TA and I am currently working in Dr. Ellen Li's research lab, studying colorectal cancer. My other involvements include: member of the Academic Judiciary Committee, Scholar in the PACE (Pre-Medical Access to Clinical Experience) Program, Intern in UCEP (SBHOME) Internship and Intern in the Geriatric Internship at the Stony Brook Primary Care Clinic. In addition, I am the first place recipient for the Stony Brook Upper Division Writing Contest for my paper "​Impacts of Technology on Dating and Relationships in Different Cultures." Through my involvement on campus and my position in TEAM HBV SBU, I hope to spread awareness of global medical issues and help create a world of medical equality.
