I’m a 20-something who strongly feels that one of the most sustainable ways to influence how people think and act is by bringing together passionate, interdisciplinary change makers to create, debate, disagree, and learn about important issues across various sectors. The reflections I share on this site are my attempt to bring us all a little closer.
I graduated from New York University in 2014 with a B.A. in Global Health Equity. While in college, I learned about the many social and structural factors that create and exacerbate disparities in access to health care and health outcomes, using the HIV/AIDS pandemic as a framework for addressing these larger questions. I have continued to pursue these interests through M.S. in Medical Sciences and M.P.H. in Global Health degrees from Boston University. In 2017, I will begin medical school, and I am thrilled to be thinking about how healthcare professionals, patients, and communities can work together to tackle society’s biggest challenges – inside and outside the clinic.
While not blogging, you can find me traveling to new cities, people watching in neighborhood coffee shops, or catching up on the latest episode of NCIS.
