Student Division Region 1 Director
Haley Manella is an MD candidate at Tufts University School of Medicine, class of 2016. After graduating from Boston University with a dual degree in Biology and Psychology in 2007, she pursued a career as a Surgical Neurophysiologist. While working full-time in the operating room she completed a Master’s degree before applying to medical school. Her involvement with AMWA began during her first year at Tufts when she joined her chapter’s student board as Liaison. As Liaison she has had the opportunity to assist in fundraising and in planning for both chapter and regional events. She looks forward to continuing this work as Region 1 Director.
Passionate about travel and global health, Haley spent the summer of 2013 in Cambodia providing community health outreach and education to mothers and children living in villages outside Siem Reap. She plans to continue this kind of outreach throughout her career. As a young woman entering the medical profession, Haley looks to make a meaningful impact and hopes that her role in AMWA can help to advance advocacy for the rights of women and children.
In addition to her dedication to medicine, Haley is a devout yogini, constantly encouraging others to take up the practice in order to better both their physical and mental wellbeing.
