Premedical Division Vice President of Recruitment
Pooja Butani is a graduate from the University of California, Berkeley as a Premedical student with a Bachelor’s degree in Molecular and Cell Biology with an emphasis on Neurobiology. She has been an active and dedicated member both in her local AMWA Berkeley Chapter and the National AMWA organization. Besides AMWA, she loves to mentor underserved elementary school children at Sylvia Mendez Elementary School in Berkeley. Just like her constant support system, she hopes to become a role model and a constant support for those children in their path to a greater education and involvement within the community. She promotes the importance of mental health not only amongst the empowering women of AMWA but also throughout the neighborhood and the young growing generations of great leaders and physicians that are just getting started with their educational path. She also serves our veterans in the Veterans Affairs Greater Los Angeles Healthcare System, where she does research to aid professionals in providing the best care to patients with available resources. For her mentorship means everything, and she strives to provide students and members the resources that can assist not only their goals but also their health throughout their lives.
