Your Contributions Have Helped Echo Phoenix Buffalo, STFM Foundation
Student Scholar

STFM has given me a network and home to develop myself as a leader in academic family medicine and create robust and impactful change that will improve and better serve patients, communities, and systems"

Being given the opportunity to attend the STFM Medical Student Education Conference as a student scholar was such a life-changing experience! Although the conference was virtual, I felt surrounded by so much diverse knowledge and experience from fellow scholars, future colleagues, and potential mentors in academic family medicine. After attending the conference, I am even more confident in my decision to pursue a career in academic family medicine.

My interests include medical education and pipeline initiatives, underserved care, women’s health, and behavioral health. I hope to become a faculty physician and clinical educator and eventually have a leadership role at a medical school or family medicine department. I am passionate about diversity in medicine and mentoring and want to continue to promote and recruit URM students in medicine and family medicine.
