about me now...
Born in Pakistan, grew up in NH, MA, NY, & OK. I graduated from Edmond North High School as class valedictorian in 2003 then promptly entered the University of Oklahoma on scholarship. There, I discovered my love of (1) activism and (2) medicine. After four great years, I graduated in 2007. Shortly thereafer I moved to Egypt where I studied Arabic (فصحى), Islam, and international health at the Al-Diwan Arabic Institute and Ain Shams University. After a year and certificate in Modern Standard Arabic (CMSA), I moved back to the States with a newfound appreciation of global health and medicine. I began medical school at the University of Michigan in 2008 and felt a passion for hematology/oncology and public health. I took a leave from medical school to pursue an MPH at Harvard. In my spare time, I think of clever things to tell people what I do in my spare time. That, racketball, and good pieces of nonfiction
...about me later
My passion is the intersection of medicine and public health particularly hematology / oncology and cancer & environmental epidemology. I plan to pursue a residency in internal medicine at an academic hospital and later a fellowship in hematology / oncology. I hope to go into academic medicine and as a professor, the research I would like to conduct centers around environmental and behaviroal risk factors for carcinogenesis. The premise of my efforts is that if we can't cure the disease, perhaps we can prevent it. And prevantative models, despite difficulty (pubmed/23821092), do work. For instance, take the success of smoking/anti-tobacco prevention programs (pubmed/23821092). My current work is a smattering of activity around this essential premise. With cancer curves on the rise globally, it's a good time to be interested in this field.
