Anna Cassell is a MD/MBA student at the University of Utah School of Medicine. She received a BA in Anthropology from Northwestern University and a Masters in Primary Care Research from the University of Cambridge. As a medical student she has been passionate about advancing gender equity in medicine and has been involved with many local and national initiatives relating to leadership development and gender equity. She is interested in thinking about medical problems from a systems level and hopes to one day utilize her MBA in a role that combines clinical hospital medicine and administration. In her spare time she enjoys skiing, mountain biking, trail running, and playing ultimate frisbee.
Her focus for the Student Division during 2020-2021 is to continue to grow the division and expand the opportunities for AMWA student members to participate in national leadership and advocacy initiatives. She is proud of the work that AMWA is doing to improve and expand gender equity in medicine and is excited to lead the student division this coming year.
