Summer of Research and Service
Five TouroCOM-Middletown Class of 2021 Students Spend Vacation Pursuing Medical Interests
A summer of relaxation after the intensity of first-year medical school? Not for these students. Five TouroCOM Middletown students used their summer break as an opportunity to broaden their medical horizons while also fulfilling TouroCOM’s mission of service. OMS I Dana Golden, a recipient of the military’s Health Professional Scholarship Program, worked in a military lab to improve combat casualty care ; OMS I Jennifer S. Lee discovered the nexus of policy and medicine working as a Summer Fellow at U.S. Representative Sean Patrick Maloney’s office; OMS I Lyle (Yap) Yaphockun researched better medical treatment for transgender individuals; and OMS I Tiguiran Kane and OMS I Anna Marie Tran spent two weeks in Haiti studying how factors such as race, power and class affect medical treatment.
