Undecided, Medical Education, Healthcare Disparities
Lena was born in the suburbs of Houston, TX and attended the University of Texas at Austin where she majored in biochemistry. Continuing to pursue her love of science, she decided to attend medical school at the University of Texas Medical Branch. In medical school, she took an interest in medical education after tutoring several pre-clinical courses for her peers. She also volunteered at the student-run free clinic and is interested in health care disparities. She hopes to combine these interests in her future career. One of her joys in life is a good cup of coffee, and she loves discovering new beans and roasters. She also enjoys spending time with her family, trying new restaurants, and traveling. She is excited to see what Nashville has to offer and ecstatic to be joining the Vanderbilt community! Member of AOA.
