Personal triumph drives first MD/MBA student
“I’m a pediatric cancer survivor. I was diagnosed with leukemia when I was nine years old,” the Johns Hopkins Carey Business School MBA/MD student recounts, almost matter-of-factly. To make this daunting news even worse, her age and type of cancer combined for a poor prognosis. Taking part in an experimental clinical trial saved her life and instilled a drive to help others in a similar situation. “I want to go to medical school, I want to help kids like me, I want to do better,” she remembers thinking at the time. “I grew up in a children’s hospital.”
