Why did you join AmeriCorps/National Health Corps?
Growing up, service had always been important to my family and church family, and so it became important to me. As I talked with some alum and became more familiar with the program, I realized how strong and valuable it was to the surrounding community. I knew I would be taking a gap year between my undergraduate and graduate studies and this program was an exact match to what I wanted to be doing during that year. I am confident standing behind the mission and values of the National Health Corps and see it as a place of personal growth. Pittsburgh has been and always will be my home and I wanted to take the opportunity to give back. The reason I joined National Health Corps was because it incorporates many of things I am passionate about service, medicine, and improving healthcare!
