Student Division Region 3 Director
Pallavi Kawatra (she/her/hers) is a first year medical student at Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. She received her Bachelor of Neuroscience degree from University of the Sciences. She has always been extremely passionate about women’s rights and equity. During highschool, she worked at the United Nations speaking with women from all over the world to learn about their experiences and advocated for continued improvement on various issues. During college, she spoke to many incredible people within the community. She spent hours listening to the intersecting realities they have faced between their cultural backgrounds and their health. This opportunity and others urge her to want to learn about the challenges that women face, push forward to make differences that improve quality of life, and translate these initiatives to reach the greatest number of people as possible.
Along with her academic work, Pallavi is a PCOM DO Ambassador and serves on the eboard for PCOM HEARTs, the student run clinic on campus where she is working on hosting workshops that serve to educate and provide resources for the community. Pallavi enjoys binging reality TV shows, spending time in local coffee shops, and the occasional baking days!
