#MEAction Medical Travel Scholarship Award Winners

#MEAction Medical Travel Scholarship

 

Because of the generous donation from a private family foundation, #MEAction has been able to provide travel scholarships to medical practitioners and medical students to attend the National Institutes of Health conference on ME this Thursday and Friday.

 

The goal of the meeting is to showcase high-quality studies to better understand the state of the science of ME, and to help drive the field forward by identifying gaps and opportunities.

 

The travel scholarship winners include:

 

Yike Jang

Yike Jiang is a graduating MD-PhD student from Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth. He is heading into Pediatric residency at Baylor College of Medicine. He is passionate about researching diseases that have unclear etiologies, like ME/CFS, and coming up with better ways to treat children with these disorders.

 

 

 

Safia Safi

Safia Safi  grew up in the San Francisco bay area. She was raised in a large Afghan family, and is the youngest of seven children. She moved to Albuquerque, NM for her undergraduate degree and is currently a medical student at the University of New Mexico School of Medicine. She loves the field of medicine and how it is constantly evolving and always growing.

 

 

 

 

Lila Rosenthal

Lila Rosenthal, MD is a family physician certified with the American Board of Family Medicine, as well as a Diplomat of the Academy of Integrative Health and Medicine.  As a primary care physician, she has worked in community health centers and most recently ran her own private practice for 9 years which she recently closed to work in student health at the University of Colorado-Boulder.  In recent years, she has come to specialize in Mast Cell Activation Syndrome, or MCAS, to understand complex multi-organ system chronic illness, often with ME/CFS as a component. She is extremely appreciative to #MEAction for supporting her to attend this conference and looks forward to meeting new colleagues and expanding her knowledge base to be better able to help improve quality of life in patients with these difficult conditions.
