Rowan University School of Osteopathic Medicine
Allie Hecht (she/her/hers) is a fourth-year medical student at Rowan University School of Osteopathic Medicine in Stratford, NJ. Before attending medical school, she studied Anatomy and Cell Biology at McGill University in Montreal, QC and then moved to Brooklyn, NY where she worked at Community Healthcare Network organizing classes in complementary medical therapies such as yoga, meditation, reiki and acupuncture in under-resourced communities in NYC. The summer after her first year of medical school she completed her 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training with Kula Collective, strengthening her understanding of the spiritual and physical practice of yoga, and sharing these teachings with the Students for Integrative Medicine group she co-founded on campus in her first year.
Allie aspires to become a holistic primary care provider that weaves integrative medical practices and osteopathic manipulative medicine into her care, especially in under-resourced communities and women’s health. Outside of medicine, she loves playing piano and guitar, singing, hiking and cooking plant-based meals with family and friends.
