Hey HumBio! My name is Allison, and I’m so pumped to be one of your SAs this year! I am a senior who grew up in Amsterdam, and my concentration is in Comparative Health Policy. I ended up in HumBio after realizing that I wanted to learn more about economics and healthcare systems before I (hopefully) go to medical school. HumBio gave me the flexibility to do this and explore new areas, where I discovered my love for sports medicine - which inspired my dream to be a team doctor one day!
Outside of academics, I am a director for the King International Development Association, and before we were social distancing, I was a swim instructor for children with special needs, an executive member of the Stanford Undergraduate Research Association, and a 6th Man Ambassador for the men’s basketball team. I’m currently training to be an EMT, and this fall you can find me in Atlanta doing remote classes as well as interning in sports medicine for the Atlanta Falcons. In the past, I’ve been a research assistant at the medical school and a math tutor for Preschool Counts. In my free time, I love to paint by numbers, watch sports, and learn to cook new things. Stop by my Zoom office to say hi, and I’m so excited to meet you!
