Hi, my name is Ang and I am a junior, majoring in Neuroscience at UIC! I hope to go to PA school and simultaneously get a Master’s in Public Health. My dream is to help at risk populations in under-served communities. I am super passionate about mental health and would like to go into that field of work. On campus I am a RA in the Addiction Research Treatment (ART) lab, which has sparked an interest in learning about addiction/trauma as a public health issue.
