Why did you join PHC? I simply love helping people in any way possible. So far, this experience has been incredible and I continue to learn more and more on a daily basis.
What are your future plans? To become a health care professional, travel, and pursue my hobbies.
What is one thing you would change about health care? I wish doctors would emphasize lifestyle changes or alternative therapies over prescription drug usage.
Because we all want to know…
Patient population that you’re newly exposed to/learning more about? I’ve learned so much about African Americans and how much they value community.
Favorite Thing About Philly? This has GOT to be the food. The city is filled with great places to eat out or just get a quick yet delicious bite.
If you were a crayon, what color would you be? Jungle Green
Typical packed lunch? Since my health center is in the middle of nowhere, I usually buy a horrible turkey “hoagie” from the bodega on the corner. I drown it in Tabasco sauce to make it palatable.
