What are you passionate about?

Shabnam hopes to become a physician to provide quality medical care to underserved communities, especially minority women and children, in both the U.S. and abroad. She is always interested in understanding health disparities, what causes them, and how to minimize them. She is passionate about global health and learning about how medicine is practiced across different countries and cultures. One of the main reasons Shabnam joined MML was so she could delve into these important topics as a pre-medical student.
