“I chose GW because I wanted to attend a school where I would receive an excellent education. I also wanted to study in an environment where the importance of teamwork is emphasized and students work together closely to solve issues. I appreciate the growing diversity at GW, which fosters cultural awareness and competence among students and during patient interaction. As a mentor and former teacher, I enjoy being in the community and urban health track, which exposes us to the social determinants of health and provides opportunities that enable me to continue my joys of educating and mentoring.”
