Emily Nash '12, Psychology
Emily spent much of her time at Rochester conducting research on stroke patients who lost their visual abilities. As a junior, she spent a semester abroad in Israel, where her coursework focused mainly on Middle Eastern studies. After the semester, she spent an additional six weeks in Israel, where she volunteered as a First Responder with Israel's Emergency Medical Service.
After graduation, she completed a year of service with AVODAH, a Jewish service corps (an Americorps program) that engages young adults in direct service with non-profits that do anti-domestic poverty work. During AVODAH, she worked as a full-time Associate at the Medicare Rights Center, where she helped Medicare beneficiaries resolve complex Medicare issues, so they could access affordable health care. Emily is excited to be starting medical school in the fall.
