Hey everyone! My name is Emily, and I am the FSI Coordinator for the 2019-2020 year! I’m a fourth year public health major and Global Poverty and Practice minor. When I was an FSI intern I shadowed a pediatric neurologist and epileptologist at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland. It was an absolutely incredible experience that will stay with me forever. I learned so much not only from my preceptor, but also from the other medical professionals and the patients and their families. Besides coordinating and being a former TA, I volunteer in the NICU as a baby cuddler at Children’s Hospital Oakland, and recently finished as a data entry research volunteer for the Bixby Center for Population, Health and Sustainability’s Rwanda project, and as a Clinical Navigator volunteer at Children’s Hospital Oakland primary care clinic. In my free time I love to explore the Bay Area, read, and check out new recipes.
