Rush University Medical Center

I am a medical student at Rush Medical College which has allowed me to work with populations within Chicago that face the greatest challenges to health care access. This has led me to become very passionate about identifying solutions to health care disparities within our community. I am particularly interested in studying interventions that reduce inequalities in maternal and fetal outcomes.
