Premedical Division Region 7 Director
Emma Krebs is a second-year, undergraduate premedical student at The Ohio State University in Columbus, OH pursuing a degree in Health Sciences and double minoring in Nutrition and Spanish. She has been involved in AMWA since the second semester of her first year by joining her local OSU branch. She is planning to become involved in a leadership position at her local branch when elections are held this spring.
Apart from AMWA, Emma currently works as a mentor for young girls at a local elementary school as a part of an organization called 1Girl, which teaches girls about leadership, communication, collaboration, healthy relationships, and careers. Additionally, she conducts research at the Comprehensive Cancer Center at OSU, where she is currently developing a poster presentation on the effects of Rab-9 on lysosomal positioning and how that may affect patients with tumors. On the side, she’s been a member of other organizations such as Volunteers Around the World, and she is going to Panama on a medical internship trip this summer as a part of the club. She will be serving the population in clinics by taking vitals, filling prescriptions in the pharmacy, and shadowing the local physicians.
Other organizations she is a member of and hopes to become more involved in, once elections are held in the spring, are Remote Area Medical, A Moment of Magic, and Doctors without Borders. Emma believes her undergraduate experience has been enhanced by the community, opportunities, and mentorship that AMWA has given her and is excited to have the chance to become more involved with the organization. She loves AMWA’s values and mission and would love to give back to the organization that has given her so many unique opportunities by serving as a National Committee Chair.
