Meet Our Founder

Hello everyone! I'm Sara Habibipour, a current senior in high school from Palm Springs, California with a passion for medicine. 

I actually created MedSoc Talk after reading about how the West African culture heavily influenced the spread of the Ebola outbreak in 2014. I continued to research other topics on how social factors can influence public health. But, to my surprise, there weren't many resources for young students to learn more about these topics. I was shocked because in order for health disparities to be eradicated in the future, shouldn't the next generation of healthcare professionals have an understanding of these problems that exist? Soon after, I was able to shadow physicians at my local hospital and I witnessed these social factors coming to play in the real world. This gave me more motivation to educate myself and my peers on these issues.  

My main hobby is dance. I've been doing it for around thirteen years now and I love it. The movement, the energy, the artistry, the emotion, all of it! I wouldn't be the person I am today without dance.

 

In the future I hope to become a physician. I'm not sure what specialty yet, but I find infectious diseases/public health fascinating. I hope to be able to travel to remote villages across the world, perhaps with the World Organization or Doctors Without Borders, to be able to contain outbreaks of disease and provide healthcare to those who need it. 

Thank you for reading about me! Please take a moment to read about the rest of my team members! They are truly amazing and I'm so happy that they are dedicated to improving this platform. You can read about them under "Committee Members."
