Why did you choose Biomedical Graduate Education at Georgetown University?
I chose Biomedical Graduate Education at Georgetown University because I was looking for a graduate program that would provide me with a strong foundation in the science behind integrative medicine, and I found exactly that in the CAM program.
As a DMV Hoyas Biomedical Academic scholarship recipient, you were selected because your application "demonstrated a commitment to biomedical research and graduate studies at the Masters' level." What do you hope to accomplish here at Georgetown and/or what is your interest in biomedical research or graduate studies?
My interest in biomedical research stems from my passion to help build the body of evidence for integrative therapies and continue to work toward integrating these therapies into the biomedical field. Through participating in the CAM program I hope to gain a strong foundation in the evidence-based science of integrative medicine so that I may better serve others as a future yoga therapist.
What is your favorite thing about and/or to do in the DMV area?
My favorite thing to do in the DMV area is to find new restaurants and try new foods!
