How I Help
Volunteering to help others plays a big role in my personal philosophy. I believe in helping those who need help, teaching others how to become better at what they do and take care of themselves, as well as the principle of paying it forward. It is exactly this that has led me to become a volunteer, and lend a hand to those in need.

300+ hours of volunteer clinical research experience.
Research is the foundation of medical knowledge. Participation in research activities are an important part of the preparation for medical school. Physicians depend on medical literature to remain current in their fields. Most physicians participate in research at some point in their careers.
“If the world were merely seductive, that would be easy. If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem. But I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.”
