UConn School of Medicine
I am a first year medical student who was born in Hartford and raised in South Windsor, CT attended UConn at Storrs, where I majored in pathobiology, and minored in molecular and cell biology, and philosophy. My interests in the health care field are broad and include pathology, primary care, and complementary and alternative medicine. While in college, I became active in community outreach and began to volunteer at a local homeless shelter. I found this experience to be particularly meaningful and developed a passion for working with underserved populations. Also during college, I participated in an alternative spring break trip to Philadelphia that further exposed me to medically underserved populations and issues such as access, affordability, and means to care.
I hope through UST to develop a better understanding about these and other issues surrounding the medically underserved. Moreover, I plan to integrate this knowledge into the practice of medicine to better serve populations of need.
