What are you curious about and hope to explore as a Scholar?
Something I hope to explore further as a scholar is the intersection between literature and medicine—how we use storytelling to better connect with the patients we serve, and how writing can help us more deeply understand and treat mental illness. I want to learn more about the ways in which healthcare is intertwined not only with science and research, but also with philosophy, ethics, and public policy, and how we can create more effective and equitable medical systems by studying those fields. I’m particularly excited about the community, cross-campus opportunities, and summer experiences that the Robertson brings to allow me to develop my own leadership and passions.
