Undergraduate Research Assistant

“I loved being surrounded by a supportive community of faculty from Weill Cornell and 28 other minority pre-med students who inspired me everyday through the T-SRF Program. I really enjoyed how the program's focus of healthcare disparities and equity was incorporated in every class lecture and speaker event that we attended.
