India Jackson is majoring in Health Human Performance and Leisure, with a concentration in Sports Medicine, and minoring in Chemistry and Biology at Howard University. After graduation, she plans on attending medical school and obtaining as much knowledge as possible so she can begin uplifting her community through science. Her current fields of interest are anesthesiology, orthopedic surgery, and obstetrician/gynecology with a sub-specialty in Maternal Fetal Medicine.
During SUMR, Jackson worked on a research project with Meghan Lane-Fall, MD, MSHP, FCCM. The project focused on Handoffs and Transitions in Critical Care, or HATRICC, and sought to standardize handoffs and transitions of critical patients so that patients have the best outcomes.
At Howard, she is a three-time school record-holder for the Howard Swimming and Diving team. Additionally, Jackson is a Spring 2021 initiate of Beta Kappa Chi Honors Society and Iota Phi Lambda Sorority Incorporated. Outside of school and swimming, she loves to volunteer at the American Red Cross, where she is also the scheduling team leader for volunteers in the Philadelphia region. In her free time, she enjoys listening to music, particularly R&B and rap, sleeping, eating, and binge-watching an array of TV shows.
