Cailin Born

Premedical Division Region 9 Director

Cailin Born is a second 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 Anna
Vardapetyan. She is passionate about destigmatizing mental health, learning how to increase
minority representation in healthcare, and advocating for premature birth and neonatal death
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 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 dreams, and she wants to share that experience with others.
