Drew Prinster, Global Health Scholar

Drew Prinster (ES’21) is a Colorado native who is passionate about interdisciplinary study and collaboration with the aim of improving the well being of individuals in need. Prior to Yale, he developed an interest in research through his involvement with two separate labs at his local university (CU Boulder) in the domains of ecology and biochemistry. He also fell in love with direct service through his role as an adaptive snow sports instructor at his local ski resort. Through his coursework at Yale, Drew strives to balance STEM and humanities classes to prepare him for the life of service he aspires to, potentially through a combined career in medicine and public or global health. The summer after his sophomore year, he explored many of his interests as a Unite For Sight volunteer and researcher with the ZOE Eye Clinic in Honduras, an experience that solidified his interest in global health. Drew is involved with extracurriculars at Yale including Camp Kesem, the HAVEN Free Clinic, the Stiles Activities Committee, and intramural sports. In his free time, he enjoys meaningful conversations and experiences with friends and family, good books, drawing and painting, running, playing soccer, skiing and snowboarding, and reflection.
