Hello Human Biology Core! I'm so excited to meet and work with you all this year. During my time at Stanford, I was a Human Biology major with a concentration in Socio-Cultural Determinants of Health. I spent a great deal of time outside of class managing Pacific Free Clinic in San Jose and volunteering at local health-oriented non-profits, like SIRUM. Human Biology was the perfect major for me because it joined my passion for narrative-informed healthcare, science, and healthcare systems. I've spent time in healthcare settings in Bolivia, France and the United States, and I am excited about the idea of being a future physician, myself. Whatever you choose to focus on during your own time in Human Biology, know that you have an amazing department of faculty and advisors behind you who are excited to help you explore, learn, and grow. Welcome to the Core.
