Anishaa is a senior at the University of Central Florida (UCF), located in Orlando. She became involved with AMSA when she set foot in the University, serving as a research director for her Pre-Med branch for two years, during which she established a research database for members and collaborated on seminars on Alzheimer’s Awareness and Gender Discrimination in Medicine. This past year she served as Treasurer for her Pre-Med branch, establishing a new budgeting system and organizing funding for numerous trips and events. That same year, Anishaa served on the AMSA AIDS Advocacy Network Steering Committee, and had the amazing opportunity to participate in Advocacy Day as an Advocacy Coach. Anishaa used the skills she gained from this experience to work towards establishing advocacy efforts in Orlando, which she hopes to continue working on in the upcoming year. Outside of AMSA, Anishaa currently works in a molecular neuroscience lab investigating epigenetic modulation, and is serving as an MCAT instructor for Kaplan, Inc.
