Premedical Student Division Region 9 Director
Jennie Luu is a member of Texas Tech University’s Class of 2015. As an undergraduate, she is actively involved in various pre-medical organizations on campus, the National Society of Collegiate Scholars, and leads a high school mentoring program, Adopt-A-Class, at Talkington High School in Lubbock, Texas. As a pre-medical student, Jennie is also a cofounder of Texas Tech’s AMWA chapter, which started in 2013, and she currently serves as president. Starting an AMWA chapter has allowed her to plan interactive events for her members to learn more about our country’s healthcare system, along with exposing her chapter to various medical professions by bringing in physician guest speakers. As president, it was also a privilege for her to set up a medical school admissions review program that allows her members to be formally reviewed by Texas Tech University’s Health Sciences Center, before applying to medical school. In the past, Jennie has volunteered in free clinics and worked in Medical-Surgical ICU in Fort Worth, Texas. Jennie’s goal is to become a surgeon and open her own clinic in the future. Her drive to become a physician has brought her to discover AMWA and its mentorship, allowing her to combine her interest in medicine with the mission statement of AMWA’s. As an undergraduate AMWA leader, she plans to increase membership in the pre-medical student division by sharing her knowledge and experience in starting a local branch to new, uprising chapters, continue to establish a stable program to connect local AMWA chapters to nationals, and to continue to help facilitate the establishment of the undergraduate branch.
