WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR MOST REWARDING EXPERIENCE THUS FAR?
My most rewarding student experience thus far was the video project I did for my medical decision-making class with Heather Dorman. My project commemorated my late grandmother, who died from medical complications and had many years of lackluster health care due to her not being able to speak English. I saw firsthand while translating Spanish to English how some providers pushed her off.
I made a video interviewing over 10 people of different colors, backgrounds, sexual orientations, gender identities, and disabilities and gave feedback on how to treat patients better. The video received over 12,000 views on YouTube, 200 shares on Facebook, and currently has several articles from local paper agencies talking about the project.
