Lydia Nelson

What are you most looking forward to this service term?
I am looking forward to learning about HIV/AIDS, getting to know Chicago, and serving its residents to the best of my ability.

What are your plans after AmeriCorps service?
My goal is to become a physician and work to deliver high quality healthcare to underserved communities.

I'm interested in learning about...
the barriers associated with immigrant access to healthcare, as well as stigma against certain diseases and/or lifestyles.
