MedPLUS is excited to welcome two new interns to our team and also want to wish farewell to one of our longterm interns who will start medical school this fall. Hannah Lawrence is currently a first year student in the clinical psychology Ph.D. program at the University of Maine with a developmental concentration. She attended Davidson College for her undergraduate degree and graduated in 2012. While at Davidson she held leadership and research positions in pyschology and continues to be highly interested in pediatric and child psychology as she pursues her graduate degree. Hannah is currently helping MedPLUS as our Outreach Specialist and is already forging new connections for our organization.
Parin Nanavati graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2013. While at UNC she was involved in Project Heal which led to her interest in public health issues and a deep connection to the community of Lawra, Ghana. She is currently a research intern at UNC School of Medicine's Center for Heart and Vascular. She also volunteers as a doula in local hospitals and hopes to attend medical school in the future. Parin is eager to continue to serve the people in Lawra as a part of the MedPLUS Connect team.
We are so excited to have Hannah and Parin join the MedPLUS team but are also sad to say goodbye to one of our long term interns, Anna Handorf. Anna has worked with MedPLUS since 2011, performing a variety of tasks and providing instrumental support to our organization. She has especially helped MedPLUS in finding information, searching for grants, and organizing fundraisers, including helping to plan the Piccadilly fundraiser held in Cleveland last month. Her caring nature, strong character, and fantastic organizational skills have been a great help to us over the past years and although we will miss her, we know that she will do great things as she pursues her dream of becoming a doctor and begins medical school this fall. Thank you Anna and best of luck in all your future endeavors!
