Hello, my name is Marissa Matthews. I’m currently a member of the Class of 2019 at Oakland University William Beaumont School of Medicine in Rochester, MI. I earned my B.S. in Biology at Oakland University where I was very active in the Honors College, Global Brigades, and conducted research in diabetes. I currently serve as Mentorship Committee Chair for OUWB AMWA where our efforts this year have matched 102 pairs of medical students and undergraduates together. We also started an MCAT workshop that offers free tutoring sessions for our undergraduate population. I am also currently a member of the National Global Heath and Advocacy Committee. In my free time, I enjoy camping, kayaking, trying new restaurants, and watching cooking shows.
