I AM A LOOKING TO GO

Tasha Phillips-Wilson

Chair

Tasha is a rising 3rd year at St. George’s University School of Medicine. She received her MS in Biomedical Sciences from Barry University and her BS in Movement Science from the University of Michigan. GO BLUE!

Consistent with her enthusiasm for medical education beyond the traditional curriculum, Tasha currently serves as Academy Chair, wherein she manages the Academy, Leadership, and Scholars Programs. She hopes to increase awareness about the current state of healthcare and highlight areas where our collective advocacy efforts are needed. She has a strong foundation for the facilitation of learning as her involvement with SGU’s Student Government Association was serving on the curriculum committee. She was honored with the President’s Choice Award for her exemplary service and dedication in this role.

During her AMSA years, Tasha served as the AMSA-SGU Chapter President where she led the largest student body of members to become recipients of the Paul R. Wright Chapter Success Award. In this role, she helped facilitate community health fairs, campus-wide blood drives, and Health Equity Weeks of Action that better served Grenadian citizens. During the COVID-19 era, she saw fit to join AMSA’s Just Medicine Campaign to help fight for more affordable drug pricing.

Outside her AMSA passion, Tasha has been honored by SNMA as a National FLP Fellow and a Future Researcher in Medicine in support of her efforts to increase diversity in medicine and focus on health equity research. For balance, physical and mental health, she finds pure joy in music and teaching liturgical and modern dance to underserved youth.
