Hi everyone! My name is Hayat and I am a senior in Currier House (best house!) studying neurobiology. This year I will be Co-Directing Indigo, a peer counseling group that focuses on how different aspects of our identity affect mental health. I will also be Co-Directing the Harvard Black Health Matters Conference, which will focus on health disparities and social determinants that affect health outcomes within the Black community. In the past, I was involved in PBHA and MAPS (Minority Association of Premedical Students). I am also excited to begin research on the effects of maltreatment and adverse childhood experiences on mental health. Iā€™m interested in health disparities and how identity and factors such as race and socioeconomic status can significantly affect health outcomes. I have really enjoyed PAFing for the past two years and am happy to share my experiences, interests, struggles, and advice with those navigating their pre-med experiences!
