Tell us about an employment, service, or research experience that was important to you.
While at Notre Dame, I participated in their Summer Service Learning Program through the Center for Social Concerns. This was the most transformative experience I have had working in healthcare. Through this program, I lived on-site at a homeless shelter for two-months and interned at their free clinic. I was able to witness first-hand the physical and psychological effects of living in poverty.
What first sparked your interest in community service?
My interest in community service was first sparked when I worked as an intern for Penn State Hershey Medical Center's Community Outreach Department.
What about Philadelphia excites you the most?
