Between college and medical school, I obtained my MPH with a concentration in Global Health.

This solidified my interst in complex issues in pregnancy and my passion for working with women in marginalized communities.

Having been a medical student here, I was fortunate to experience what an amazing program this was before applying to residency. Ultimately, the collegiality among faculty, residents and staff is what won me over, in addition to the breadth of global health opportunities.
