PHA Internal Coordinator| MCDB 2021
WHY DID YOU BECOME A PART OF SCOPE?
I initially became a part of SCOPE PHA because I was aware of the deficiencies present in healthcare and wanted to actively work to correct them. It was my perception that health professionals often only have time and only get payed to treat the illnesses a patient comes in for, not the factors which cause the illness. Through SCOPE PHA, I've had the opportunity to mitigate many of the issues different populations face with healthcare, working to connect them with the resources necessary to prevent them from having to come into the clinic in the first place.
WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO LEAD YOUR SPECIFIC PROGRAM?
After volunteering with SCOPE PHA for a year, I recognized there was a lot of untapped potential within PHA and I hoped to help solidify its mission and further expand its reach into the LA community.
I'm originally from Florida
FUTURE GOALS AND ASPIRATIONS
After I (hopefully) get my MD, I'd like to work in a clinic specifically catering to homeless individuals.
