SASH/Care, Race Relations
Hi PfoHo! I (along with my husband Sameer) am super excited to be part of the Pfoho family as Resident tutors! I am currently a fourth-year Chief resident in the Partners Neurology Program at Massachusetts General Hospital and Brigham and Women's Hospital. My career interests are in health disparities and global health. I graduated from Harvard Medical School in 2013, where a lot of my research, community service, and extracurricular involvements focused on women’s health, health disparities (specifically refugee and immigrant community health), and medical ethics. I also served on the HMS Admissions Committee and as a counselor for the Boston Area Rape Crisis Center, and look forward to drawing on all these experiences to be helpful to you. I graduated from Yale, where I double majored in Behavioral Neuroscience and International Studies. After college, I obtained a Woodbridge Fellowship to conduct interfaith community organizing work with student groups and social service agencies in New Haven, Connecticut. I am originally of Iraqi and Iranian heritage, having lived in Iran, Canada and most recently Orange County, California. As you might be able to tell, my interests are varied and I am happy to chat about all of the above, and whatever else strikes your fancy! Specifically at Pfoho, I will be serving as a pre-med, SASH/CARE, Race Relations, and Interfaith Relations tutor. Creating safe, diverse, and inclusive community spaces has always been a deep and personal passion of mine, and I hope to do that for you at Pfoho. Long story short: can’t wait to get to know you! Come on by and let’s chat!
