Zaina Khoury is a Rodham Institute intern and recent University of Michigan graduate, where she studied biopsychology, cognition, and neuroscience. Psychology is her academic passion, which helped foster her interest in mental health awareness and destigmatization. Zaina has also conducted research on wealth essentialism, which positions her well to work with the Rodham Institute and learn about the social determinants of health.
Currently, Zaina is helping organize food resources at various locations in Southeast D.C. She is also conducting interviews with health care workers and community leaders to spotlight the Rodham Institute's advocacy and partnerships.
Zaina hopes to attend medical school in the near future so that she may address health disparities from a new perspective.
