    • Medicine

"It was really fulfilling being able to create products that I knew were going to better people’s lives, but it didn’t feel as real without seeing their actual impact and seeing the people it was helping day to day." Annabah's family experienced a lot of health related issues during her teen years. Spending time in and out of the clinics allowed her to grow respect and appreciation for doctors and the health care industry. It wasn't until after achieving her undergraduate degree in chemical engineering and working in the field that she realized she wanted to practice medicine. Today we talk about the pivot in career choice, what it is like to move away from Utah for the first time to attend Stanford university, volunteer time in "street medicine and how that led to a term with Americorps, and finally, preparing to apply to medical school.
