Krisha Gupta

 

 

Student Division Recruitment Chair

Krisha is a second-year student from Florida studying at Nova Southeastern University College of Osteopathic Medicine pursing a DO and a MPH.  She received a BS in Biochemistry from the University of Florida in 2019 where she also received degrees in Anthropology and Health Disparities in Society . Her family and personal experience with chronic illness both played a huge role in her decision to pursue medicine.  She is passionate about education, advocacy, and mentoring and especially loves to work with children.  She spends her summers working with kids with type 1 diabetes at Florida Diabetes Camp and mentors students throughout the year.  Although she isn’t 100% sure about what specialty she wants to pursue, she knows that it will involve advocating for underserved patient populations, mentoring future healthcare professionals, and developing community health education programs.  Outside of medical school, she enjoys visiting national parks, reading, and spending time with her family.
