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.
