City of Brotherly Love
"Philly" is home to 1.5 million residents, fabulous and fiesty sports teams and fans, the Liberty Bell, the soft-pretzel and famous cheesesteaks and hoagies. The history and character of our landmarks and people make this city an exciting place to live, serve and have fun!
I started shadowing at Health Center #6 in high school...I knew I wanted to come back to see more and learn more. Thus, I decided to spend my National Health Corps year back at Health Center #6. This Health Center has given me intangible life lessons that I will take with me wherever I go.
The opportunity to work with an underserved community this year and to observe firsthand how social context affects health outcomes has given me a newfound motivation to devote my career to public service.
