Nabihah Ahsan (PC‘25) is a sophomore at Yale College majoring in Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology from Long Island, NY. She is currently on the board of the Public Health Coalition and serves as the internal relations chair for the American Medical Women’s Association at Yale. Studying social determinants of health has led her to advocate for necessary public health interventions. She is interested in the study of neurological development, particularly among youth, minority, and refugee populations in war-torn countries while connecting it to the larger global mental health crisis. She is currently involved with research at the Yale Child Study center, assessing the effects of trauma on child cognitive and psychological development. She is also very passionate about volunteer work and serving her community. Outside of class, she has a special love for learning about diverse cultures, traditions, and peoples. In the future she is looking forward to pursuing an MD.
