“Helping to make HMS welcoming to all students is of primary importance to me. I’ve also found being on the Board of Fellows and the ACE committee a wonderful way for me to stay engaged with the medical school. I feel honored to have the opportunity to discuss current HMS challenges and victories with George Daley and (Dean for Medical Education) Ed Hundert (MD ’84).”
“Harvard changed my life in many ways—being a doctor, being a health advocate, being a filmmaker. I got the skills from Harvard and being there and having that opportunity—all because of that party I went to.”
