Peer Mentor; Health Sciences Scholars Program

What is a health issue that you are really passionate about, and why?

I'm passionate about addressing the root causes of health disparities. Modern medicine has made amazing advances, but the benefits of this progress aren't felt equally. In order to truly build healthy communities and societies, we have to work towards an equitable healthcare system.

Describe a way you implement wellness and taking care of yourself?

I take care of myself by spending time with friends and family and doing relaxing hobbies, such as cross-stitching or hiking.
