Ubah Dallin (GH ’25) is a MCDB and Sociology student from Columbus, Ohio. She was drawn to the Global Health Scholars program for its attention to an interdisciplinary understanding of health. She believes there is a humanitarian necessity for global medicine. Obtaining knowledge of the driving forces that shape various cultural practices of health and the development of treatment is the start of creating more equitable and helpful health systems around the world. She is particularly curious to investigate the significant health disparities that minority races face. She is also interested in topics such as the medicalization of morality and cultural values and the post-colonial legacy of bioethical abuse and medical exploitation of the Global South. On campus, Ubah spends her time as a research assistant in a molecular genetics laboratory, a volunteer at the HAVEN Free Clinic and the Yale Community Kitchen, and a community health educator for New Haven public schools students.
