She also serves as a stakeholder research grant reviewer for the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation and is on her fourth year of writing a book she began as an advanced creative writing thesis centered on the themes of self-perception in relation to health, which she hopes to have finished and near publication by the end of 2018 thanks to her many mentors. She joined AMWA in 2017 after hearing about a summer internship opportunity with Dr. Chin and the organization’s missions.
