2021 - Present | Hemophilia Ontario

As an MBA student from the Rotman School of Management at the University of Toronto, I was selected as a Board Fellow with Hemophilia Ontario. Hemophilia Ontario is a patient advocacy group representing patients with inherited bleeding disorders. As a fellow, I led the strategic planning process, publishing the 2022 - 2025 Strategic Plan upon its approval by the Board of Directors. In 2022, I was elected to the Board of Directors for a two-year term.

2020 | 3D Printing to Supply Face Shields to Support Acute Shortages of PPE during the COVID-19 Pandemic

As healthcare professional students were taken off their clinical rotations, learners from all disciplines including medicine, pharmacy, and management, banded together to support immediate needs of personal protective equipment (PPE) supply. As a Co-Founder of 3D PPE GTHA, a grassroots initative in Ontario, I led a team of students and volunteers as we recruited 3D printers accross the country, supplied plastic filaments, printed face shield frames, procured actate shields for laser cutting, sanitized the final products using laboratory standards, and supplied over 167 healthcare facilities with 25,000 face shields during the COVID-19 pandemic.

2018 - 2020 | Polio Elimination in India

As a Researcher with the Reach Alliance, based out of the Munk School of Global Affairs & Public Policy from the University of Toronto, my team of medical, pharmacy, economics, and political science students led a study to investigate how India was able to eliminate polio in 2014. We visited experts in Uttar Pradesh and New Delhi where key insights were gathered. Ultimately, our study was published in the British Medical Journal Global Health to better inform vaccine strategy.
