About this Fundraiser:

Liz and Stephanie are students at the University of West Florida in the Kugelman Honors Program. Both are pursuing majors in Biomedical Science and seek careers related to medicine. Liz and Stephanie are both concerned with systemic issues of income inequality in regards to medical care and standard of living. For their service project in the Honors Program, Liz and Stephanie aim to target medical debt in Escambia County, Florida.

Liz

After her undergraduate experience at UWF, Liz aspires to attend medical school for either pediatrics or emergency medicine. In her current position as a medical scribe in an emergency room, she has first-hand experiences with individuals that face financial insecurity when it comes to medical costs. Through this campaign, Liz intends to enhance awareness within the community in hopes to alleviate medical debt. 

Stephanie

Stephanie's particular area of interest is the cellular and molecular basis for disease and resulting medical applications. She is currently engaging in research under professor guidance for biomarkers of Alzheimer's Disease using phage display techniques. For graduate school, she aims to attend a program for cellular pharmacology. With RIP Medical Debt, she hopes to synthesize her passions for medicine and human well-being to attain change.
