Jennifer Shah (she/her)
My name is Jen and I'm so excited to be one of your SAs this year! I am a senior from New York City and my HumBio concentration is in Global Public Health and Epidemiology. I'm also majoring in Comparative Studies in Race & Ethnicity with a concentration in Health & Wellness and minoring in Humanities with a concentration in Music! In the past, I've TA'ed HumBio 88 and HumBio 163 (and can't recommend those classes more!). I am so grateful for HumBio and all of the amazing professors, peers, and opportunities that have enabled and encouraged me to explore my passions for health equity and harm reduction related to the opioid epidemic.
Outside of HumBio, I love to sing with my a cappella group, Stanford Talisman, and to go on walks around campus. I am a research assistant at the medical school looking at best practices to promote health equity in plastic surgery. I also helped start the Campus Opioid Overdose Prevention (COOP) Project with some other Stanford students. I'm sure that this year, like last year, will hold its own uncertainty and set of surprises, but I'm so excited to contribute to the warm and grounding community that HumBio has always been. I can't wait to get to know you, to help each of you find opportunities to explore your passions, and to welcome you into the ever-growing HumBio family tree!
