Abe has a longstanding interest in public health and policy: in high school, he co-founded and led Students Against Nicotine, a national nonprofit combating adolescent tobacco and e-cigarette use through education and legislative advocacy. He also served as the inaugural National Recruitment Coordinator and New York Lead for Telehealth Access for Seniors, a group that responded to the COVID-19 pandemic in the U.S. by donating over 3,500 video-enabled devices to low-income elderly individuals in need. In 2022, Abe and a team of Yale students won the national Tulane University Health Policy Case Competition with a proposal to address gun violence from a public health perspective. Abe also has a strong interest in bioethics and health security. In his free time, you can find Abe playing the saxophone, hiking, and spending time with friends. He is excited to join the Global Health Scholars program and to deepen his understanding of health policy challenges around the world.
