Hannah Yusuf is a rising junior at the University of Pennsylvania. Her major is Political Science, with a minor in Bioethics. She intends to pursue a masters degree in Bioethics. After witnessing how socioeconomic status can impact access to healthcare in the lives of people important to her, Yusuf developed interest in the healthcare field, and later in health policy.
During SUMR, Yusuf is working with Dr. Holly Fernandez-Lynch and Dr. Jessica Dine. With Dr. Fernandez-Lynch, Yusuf will be exploring expanded access. With Dr. Dine, she will be exploring social networks of practicing physicians, and how these networks develop along ethnic and cultural lines.
At Penn, Yusuf volunteers for the Civic Youth Action Partnership (CYAP), and is Secretary of the Student Hospice Organization. She is also an editor for 34th Street. In her free time, she enjoys reading, writing, and spending time with friends.
