Alana is from a small town in Westchester County, NY called North Salem. She went to college at Johns Hopkins University where she majored in neuroscience with minors in psychology and philosophy. After graduating, Alana stayed in Baltimore for a year to do basic science research about addiction at NIDA. She moved back to Manhattan for medical school at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. Alana is a preliminary internal medicine resident, and she will be going to University of Pennsylvania for neurology residency after her year at UNC. Alana loves outdoor activities, so she is really looking forward to exploring all of the running and hiking trails in the Chapel Hill area.
