Helping Hands

Being an active part of my community is an integral reason I went into medicine.

Some work includes the Pediatric Leaders Advancing Health Equity (PLUS) at UCSF and hosting a public health and media workshop series at a high school in San Francisco, beginning a health literacy program at a HBCU in Jackson, Mississippi, co-founding healthcare screenings for indigenous/Choctaw communities in my home-state of Mississippi as an initiative of the Student National Medical Association International Affairs Committee, volunteering with Generator Collective in Brooklyn, New York, and helping lead an information/demonstration and drug take-back event on the opioid epidemic in Hawaii as part of the American Medical Association (AMA).  I also co-authored a resolution on AMA's dedication of fighting the impact of implicit bias within healthcare.
