Alexandra Alvarez

Premedical Division External Relations Chair

Currently a student at UC Berkeley, Alexandra Alondra Alvarez is pursuing a degree in Molecular and Cell Biology with an emphasis on Cell and Developmental Biology. While she has only been apart of AMWA for a little over two semesters, she has been involved in AMWA by being an active member of the Cancer and Women’s Health committee in her branch, joining the AMWA 103rd Annual Conference Pre-Medical Planning Committee, and being the UC Berkeley AMWA branch Secretary. Apart from AMWA, Alexandra is passionate about women’s health and runs a nonprofit called Ladies for Change that aims to raise awareness on the lack of hygienic menstrual products for women in need everywhere. She also currently works on research under Diana Bautista, studying the mechanisms behind touch, pain, and itch. She has really loved seeing AMWA’s mission brought to life through its members and everyone she comes across. She loves seeing how students gain the support and resources they need to pursue their passion.
