“I have always been drawn to healthcare for the underserved as one of the most direct ways of helping people who need it most. I love the feeling of knowing that, perhaps by just listening and being with a patient, I may help them through their darkest time. I also love teaching residents and medical students, particularly about social influences on the health of their patients.”
