“I am proud of lettering in football all 4 years at ECU and, of course, getting into medical school. My MPH degree opened my eyes to the health disparities facing our great nation and will help me meet my goals of why I entered medical school – to make a difference in people’s lives and to serve in underserved communities.
An M.D. once told me that D.O.’s are “doctors who care” which is one of the reasons why I chose to enter osteopathic medicine. VCOM’s Carolinas Campus has amazing new facilities and it is in a great location in the south. The Carolinas Campus is close to the beach, close to the mountains, and the campus is beautiful.
When I am not studying I enjoy going for a run in the Wofford campus, VCOM’s partner, or preparing to study some more! ”
