“My professional goals are to become a physician-scientist at an academic institution, to provide care to underserved communities, find novel ways to treat cancer, diminish cancer-related disparities, and ultimately to improve the quality of life of cancer patients. With these skills, I aspire to mentor and teach residents and graduate students, especially underrepresented minority trainees.”
