Emily Beaman is currently a Junior at Lehigh University majoring in Behavioral Neuroscience and minoring in the HMS Program. She has always wanted to work with people as both a leader and volunteer and this shows as she is a Big Sister for the Big Brother Big Sister program of Lehigh Valley. After spending time over the summer conducting biomedical research, Emily realized she wanted to work more with people and is now planning to get her master’s in public health after graduating from Lehigh. The minor program has helped her find interests in public health and inspire me to pursue a career in health.
“My Medicine & Society class I took last fall with Judith Lasker was really interesting and taught me a lot about our own healthcare system and how it compares to other countries. I learned so much through this class that I had never known before and it's really widen my horizons on what careers I could pursue in medicine than just pursuing a career as a doctor.”
