Executive Director of the University of Pennsylvania Student Health Service.

"I'm interested in the health of our students," Nguyen told the Daily Pennsylvanian, "but it's not just the health of the students who walk into the doors of our office at 3535 Market Street. It is the health of students who never even think about walking into our student health clinic, but still could benefit from our outreach," Nguyen said.

Nguyen came to the United States from Vietnam at a young age and in 2004 created the Penn Asian Health Initiatives in the Perelman School of Medicine — a program that gave out 3,000 vaccines to underinsured Asian-Americans in Philadelphia.
