Why did you join AmeriCorps/National Health Corps?
Much of my undergraduate education and experiences influenced me to think about health and healthcare from a social perspective. Through this, I gained awareness of health disparities and inequities that people face across our country today, and I became motivated to confront these issues in a career in medicine. When deciding how I wanted to spend my gap year applying to medical school, I knew I wanted to do something meaningful and with an organization that shared my goals and values. Becoming a member of the National Health Corps seemed like a great opportunity to perform service that has the potential to be truly transformative, all while learning more about myself, my areas of interest in healthcare, and the communities I want to help most.
