Phoebe is a fourth year medical student at the Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine. Raised in South Florida, Phoebe attended Clark University in Worcester, Massachusetts where she fell in love with Public Health, Biology, and the Arts. After graduating in 2016, she began a Master of Public Health Degree at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine. There, she became one of the team-members who began Florida’s first syringe exchange program and served as a student employee of the exchange: working at the exchange, attending AIDS Network Advocacy Day on Capitol Hill, and collaborating with community stakeholders. Towards the end of her first year of medical school, Phoebe’s alma mater, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, became site of a mass casualty shooting event. In the wake of this tragedy, Phoebe joined forces with another alumnus and medical students from across the country to form the AMSA Medical Students for Gun Safety Action Committee. This will be her third year as part of the committee, and first year as co-chair.
