Dean's Advisory Council for LGBTQI Affairs: Directories: Educational Interest; Research Interest | Yale Medicine Outlist


Originally from Seattle via metro Detroit via Honolulu. I spent a few years traveling and working in a vegan restaurant before coming to medicine. Now, I'm incredibly interested in global medical education, LGBT health, and qualitative research. I also spend a lot of time at the yoga studio, cooking meals inspired by Chef's Table with friends, and trying to find any opportunity to go scuba diving.
