Jack is excited to begin serving as a leader at AMSA. He just completed his first year in the MD/PhD program at Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center. He hails from beautiful Asheville, North Carolina, and completed his undergraduate education at Claremont McKenna College in Claremont, California, where he majored in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics. Prior to beginning graduate school, he spent time performing research at the National Institutes of Health. At The New Physician, he hopes to integrate his experiences from his undergraduate education and his brief time in science and medicine to address many of the pressing issues in health care today, all while working to increase the online reader interaction and content of the magazine.
When not studying, he enjoys playing tennis, fishing, hiking, and doing mostly anything outdoors. He remains undecided regarding what field in which to specialize, but has an interest in building a career in academic medicine.
