Emily is a junior originally from South Florida before she moved to Orlando to pursue a bachelor’s degree in Health Science Pre-Clinical at the University of Central Florida. She is currently conducting an independent research study on insurance coverage and how it relates to college health and academics. Her research interests include medical sociology, racial and ethnic disparities in health, college health, and educational-related health outcomes. In addition to her research, she serves as a mentor for middle school girls aiming to foster leadership qualities to break the glass ceiling and volunteers at a clinic that provides health services to the underserved. Emily plans to attend medical school where she will pursue a career in Obstetrician and Gynecology specializing in Maternal-Fetal Medicine. She hopes to become an advocate for women health and to merge the gap between health disparities in underserved communities.
