Health Advocacy Director
University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health
I am so excited to be elected as your new Health Advocacy Director. I want to share a little more about me and want to emphasize that I am open to talk any time. Even if I haven’t met you yet, I definitely do want to so please feel free to reach out if you ever have any questions or comments! A little about me is that I was born and raised in Seattle, WA and moved over to Baltimore, MD for college. I attended Johns Hopkins University and graduated in 3 years with a B.S. in Molecular and Cellular Biology and worked as a research technologist/coordinator for a year. I moved to the Midwest a little over a year ago to attend medical school at University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, where I have worked to re-establish all of the connections I had made to my previous communities. I am the leader of over five organizations in my school as well as working on several community projects. I love reaching out and becoming involved with things I am passionate about, and APAMSA is definitely one of them. My short term goals as your Health Advocacy Director are the following:
- Poll APAMSA members on important health advocacy topics to support
- Work to disseminate ideas and good advocacy events hosted by local chapter and regions
- Create an advocacy campaign highlighting and rewarding members who work to advocate for common issues
I cannot wait for the upcoming years and I am open to suggestions and want to work towards changes and goals that members of APAMSA want to see, as I work to represent the ideas of you all. Thank you again for electing me!
