Michael is a 4th year medical student at Touro University California College of Osteopathic Medicine going into Emergency Medicine. He joined AMSA in 2014 as a freshman at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and began growing his passion for health policy and advocacy. This is his 5th year in a national leadership role, having served as Medical Education and Professionalism coordinator, regional director, VPPD, and Med Ed Scorecard Chair.
Michael has a particular interest in healthcare access, especially among migrant populations, addiction medicine, community medicine, and medical education and plans to integrate all of these into his future practice. With AMSA, he hopes to expand membership, work with chapters on local advocacy, and helping AMSA garner more national attention.
In his free time, Michael enjoys hiking with his dog, beer tasting, rock climbing, and anything Star Wars related.
