Amma Otchere (DC ’23) is a prospective Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology and History of Science, Medicine, and Public Health double major from Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin. She is interested in studying the legacies of racism and colonialism in global health and investigating their role in present health disparities. She hopes to pursue a career as both a physician and medical researcher. On campus, Amma works as a research assistant in neuroscience and global health, performs poetry as a member of WORD, teaches health to middle school students as a Community Health Educator (CHE), and writes for the Yale Global Health Review. As a member of STEM and Health Equity Advocates (SHEA) at Yale, she serves on a committee organizing workshops and panels to illuminate the intersections between health and a number of socioeconomic inequities. In her free time, Amma loves to read, eat ice cream, and get very dressed up to go nowhere at all.
