mateo frumholtz -- General member
Mateo is a senior in the College of Biological Sciences getting my BS in Biochemistry. I am in a dual program and am also in my first year of graduate school getting my Masters in Global Environmental Public Health. He volunteers at the University of Minnesota hospital every Sunday where he rounds on the unit interacting with patients, seeing if they need anything, and making sure they are comfortable. He also answers phone calls and manages the front desk when no one else can be there.
Mateo is an officer in the Outdoors club, which organizes events and creates a community for students interested in backpacking, camping, hiking, or doing any outdoor activities. For this club he is in charge of social media, finance, meeting planning, and opportunity outreach.
What are you passionate about?
He is passionate about rural medicine in developing countries and specifically the public health aspect of infectious diseases and helping local governments improve their health case systems. Mateo would love to help local governments implement research based sustainable health care systems that address the primary care necessity for patients as well as help prevent treatable illnesses that disproportionately affect the poor.
