Emily is a 4th year MD/MBE student looking forward to applying into General Surgery. She is originally from Woburn, MA, and graduated magna cum laude with a BS in Biochemistry and a Glynn Family Honors Program minor. During medical school, she has enjoyed the opportunity to pursue a Masters in Bioethics and serves on the AMA's Medical Student Section Bioethics Standing Committee. She has also been grateful to serve as co-leader for multiple student faith organizations, and is the current National Representative for the Christian Medical and Dental Associations. She is entering her 4th year as a student representative for the Diversity and Inclusion Advisory Committee, where her work has focused on collaborating with the different student cultural affinity groups and supporting the network of student volunteer clinics. During the COVID-19 crisis, she has been a student leader with the volunteer patient/family support program, the Medical Student Virtual Visitation Program (MVP), and is conducting clinical research with Dr. Mattei in the Dept. of Pediatric Surgery at CHOP. She hopes to combine her interests in pediatric surgery/critical care with her scholarly work in Bioethics when she completes her thesis in the coming year. At the same time, she is excited to begin her term as both the Community Outreach Chair for the Agnew Society, as well as an Education Chair for the Center for Surgical Health. She would love to talk to students about their areas of interest in medical ethics, faith and medicine, community health and advocacy, and pediatric and general surgery.
