Tatyana Desire-Brisard

Premedical Division Program Chair

Tatyana recently graduated in May after successfully obtaining degrees in Biology and Women and Gender Studies. She now aims to pursue a Master’s in Public Health with a focus in Epidemiology. Over the course of her academic career, she has aimed to gather a deeper understanding of women in health care. She strongly believes in understanding and advocating for improvements in health care, and that many disparities have been misunderstood or overlooked in medicine. Tatyana has also developed a strong interest in global health after having the opportunity to learn about international healthcare through volunteer and educational travel experiences. These experiences helped her to learn about different forms of health care, and the advantages of preventative medicine. Tatyana aspires to pursue her interests in future work with underserved communities both locally and abroad.
