Premedical Division Region 9 Director
Cailin Born is a third year premedical student at University of California, Berkeley studying Molecular & Cell Biology and Psychology. She joined AMWA in Fall 2020 and quickly fell in love with the work she was involved in on the Mental Health Committee, led by 2021-2022 President Anna Vardapetyan. Cailin is passionate about destigmatizing mental health, learning how to increase diversity in healthcare, and advocating for premature birth and neonatal research. As region director, Cailin hopes to be a resource to all members looking to find their place in medicine. Outside of AMWA, she is an active member of the environmental community on her campus through the Student Environmental Resource Center and can often be found working on her latest knitting project. AMWA has given her a place to feel supported and encouraged in her goals, and she wants to share that experience with others.
