Andres F. Diaz

Student Editor, The New Physician

My name is Andres F. Diaz, and I am an MD/PhD student at the University of Arizona College of Medicine, Tucson. I was born in Medellin, Colombia and moved to the United States with my family at the age of 11. I am passionate about oncology and public health work and hope to incorporate both to address health disparities in cancer care. As an underrepresented individual in medicine, I am particularly moved by health advocacy for migrants, refugees, and underrepresented peoples. I am also interested in health literacy and writing. As Student Editor of The New Physician, I work diligently with Pete Thompson and his staff to create a publication that is approachable, enlightening, and useful for readers and contributors alike. I am looking forward to working with AMSA leadership and members to advocate for health equity, education, and medical excellence.
