Medical School: Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University

Hometown: Camden, N.C.

Hobbies/Interests: Research-policy translation, inclusion of underrepresented groups in research, federal and state advocacy, Fantasy Football and Fantasy Bachelor, hot yoga, live music and long days on the beach

What I like about the program: The high acuity obstetrics, collaborations with Planned Parenthood and the Norfolk Public Health Department and the department's dedication to resident research sparked my interests! The program's prowess in advocacy and maternal-fetal medicine--within the community and beyond--sealed the deal.
