Patient Advocate Foundation (PAF) is a national 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization which provides case management services and financial aid to Americans with chronic, life threatening and debilitating illnesses.
My sickle cell diagnosis has shaped my life for as long as I can remember. I have graduated Magna Cum Laude with a B.S. in Interdisciplinary Science and a minor in Chemistry. I am now a second-year medical student and serve on the executive board for the Student National Medical Association and am a member of the 12CrP program which focuses on working with the underserved communities. I am extremely grateful to PAF for their support and investment in my future to pursue internal medicine-pediatrics as a trained hematologist.
