Jennifer Uyere

Student Division President-Elect

Hello, my name is Jennifer Uyere, I’m an MS3 at UAG. I’m proudly of Nigerian and Mexican descent and was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. I earned a Bachelor of Science and a Master of Science, both in Biology from California State University, Los Angeles. During my undergraduate and graduate years, I was an NIH scholar, which allowed me to partake in research, that focused on elucidating the virulence and pathogenicity of Candida albicans. Prior to medical school, I worked at two, large hospitals in Los Angeles, California as a Clinical Laboratory Scientist. During my first year, I had the opportunity to participate in UAG AMWA events and quickly found that I identified with its mission and became a national AMWA member. During my second year, I was elected UAG AMWA President and proudly lead the organization to receive recognition on campus, in the community, and at international conferences for its achievements. In addition, during my leadership, the UAG chapter increased from 15 members to over 200 members. Moreover, I’m interested in pursuing a career in Emergency Medicine or Surgery. In my free time, I love to spend quality time with family and friends, volunteer with Guimedic Medical Humanitarian Organization and Soroptimist International, travel, and try new places to eat. I’m very excited at the opportunity to serve as the President Elect for the AMWA Student Division and I greatly look forward to a positive and fruitful term.
