How did you get here?

After I finished my undergrad at UofT, I knew I wanted to make a difference in the health care field. I thought I had only two choices, medical school or straight lab theoretical research. This was until I stumbled across the Translational Research Program, a master’s program within the institute of medical science, where I could focus on the patients within their contexts and needs and work on solving real-world problems. I knew that through this program I could make an impact not by sitting behind a lab bench, but by going out and implementing change to the health care system through using a human-centric approach within design thinking. It was the perfect fit. And now, as a student in program, I came across OpenLab, and realized their ideologies align so well with what I have become so passionate about. Which brings me here, contributing to all these projects, hoping that at some point, I can be a part of making a change.
