MS2, University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health
Alex is currently a second-year medical student at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, not far from her home in Chicago. She serves as her chapter’s president of the Asian Pacific American Medical Students Association, and Community Outreach Chair of the Medical Students for Minority Concerns. Her interest in medicine largely stems from her volunteer work in free clinics in underserved communities and experiences growing up with a brother with autism.
Before attending medical school, Alex completed her undergraduate degree at Northwestern University in 2014 and her Master of Public Health (concentration in Chronic Disease Epidemiology) at Yale University in 2016. She is an aspiring pediatrician who wishes to be highly involved in the community, as a patient advocate and potential community clinic leader.
Outside of school, Alex loves anything fitness-related; particularly HIIT, hot yoga, and running. She is a hardcore coffee addict, which helps to fuel the late nights that she sometimes stays up writing on her personal blog, www.mdstudentmuses.blogspot.com.
