Biographical Info

Senior Sanam Bhatia is from Queens, New York and is studying Public Health Studies and Spanish for the Professions. Volunteering in a Brooklyn hospital’s pediatric wing really solidified that she wanted to pursue a career in medicine. On campus, Sanam participates in PEEPS with CHEW, Hopkins Undergraduates for Harm Reduction, and Public Health Student Forum. In PHSF, as a member of the publicity committee, she works to increase awareness of public health issues that affect Hopkins students, the Baltimore community, and people all over the world. In PEEP, she works with the other members to plan student health awareness events. During an intersession trip to Uganda, which was centered on public health, she learned a lot about health disparities and how they are caused by cultural, socioeconomic, and political factors. Sanam would like to learn more about how these manifest throughout the world, and compare them to issues she see in Baltimore. She hopes to use what she learn about public health to promote preventative education.
