Farheen Jamshed

Premedical Division Advocacy Chair

Farheen Jamshed is a senior premedical student at the University of California, Berkeley where she is pursuing a major in Integrative Biology and minors in Ethnic Studies and Global Public Health. She is interested in how social contexts like race and socioeconomic status affect public health in the United States and around the world, and she will be attending graduate school in the fall to work towards her master’s degree in public health. She joined AMWA through her university branch and has been an active member ever since. During her time in AMWA, she has worked closely with other AMWA members to plan many advocacy events and campaigns, at the local and national level. Farheen has previously served as the Global Health Chair of National AMWA’s Premedical Division, as well as the Secretary for her local university AMWA branch at UC Berkeley. She is excited to continue to work with AMWA and hopes to pass on the support and kindness she has received from this organization.
