Personal Statement: As I transitioned from Loyola University in Chicago, I wanted to really make a difference for women with breast cancer, especially underserved women, and decrease the survival disparities gap when comparing African-American women to White women. I felt it was important to be a part of the Emory at Grady medical team as it is an opportunity to make a difference for women who otherwise do not have the means for excellent medical care.
