Hannah is a medical student and aspiring Emergency Medicine physician from The Ohio State University College of Medicine. She graduated from Wright State University with degrees in Biological Sciences and Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies. Hannah has been a national leader with AMSA since 2017, serving on the Gender & Sexuality and Wellness & Student Life action committees and later on the board of regional directors before joining the Board of Trustees as President-Elect in 2020.
Hannah believes that AMSA’s emphasis on advocacy is essential for shaping the kind of physician we need: the kind who uses their collective voice to advocate for patients. At her home institution, she takes an active role in helping select future colleagues with this potential as a member of the OSUCOM admissions committee. As President, she hopes to foster the sense of AMSA community that has supported her throughout her journey to and through medical school, and to be a resource to AMSA’s members and leaders. Her areas of special advocacy interestâ€”and this year’s AMSA advocacy prioritiesâ€”are access to health care, reproductive justice, and medical education reform.
During her pre-clinical years, Hannah enjoyed directing UltraSound, the OSUCOM a cappella group. She also enjoys reading, hikingâ€”especially near her hometown in Appalachian Ohioâ€”and trying out new DIY projects. Following her President year, Hannah will return to Ohio State to complete her fourth year of medical school.
