    She takes patient vital signs at a community clinic. She studies enzyme function in a biochemistry laboratory. She mobilizes relief projects for Syrian refugees. She supports a free clinic serving the uninsured. HSM junior, Afshan Hussain, has no empty minutes.
  • Student Spotlight: Jesse Rivera

In Jesse’s own words, “if you’re not moving, you’re not learning.” She transferred into HSM as a sophomore and immediately went to work. She set out a course of networking, volunteering, and as she says “picking up things everywhere I go.”
