Great feature on some of the community work that our Medical Student Council does around Los Angeles. See the full article published on the UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine website.
I am so thrilled to announce that I’ll be joining the FASPE family as a medical fellow this June. I will be traveling to Berlin, Krakow, and Auschwitz to engage in dialogue around one of humanity’s worst atrocities– the Holocaust– in order to better understand how to be a more ethically conscious physician, policy maker, and leader in healthcare and the government. Please read more about the program here.
I have decided to attend Harvard for my Masters in Public Health degree in the department of Health Policy and Management this upcoming fall 2016. I am thrilled to be returning to Boston to pursue an important next step in my career!
