Welcome to Mosaic in Medicine! I currently in the class of 2022 at Florida International University Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine. Medical humanities is one of my passions. I love how medicine has the potential to inspire some of the most profound art and reflection. In addition to editing Mosaic in Medicine submissions, I enjoy catching up on current events, exercising and anything on HBO. Hope I get to read your piece someday soon :)
