More About Shima:

During university as a biology major, I grew passionate about the environment and its impact on health. Committed to the well-being of future generations, I'm dedicated to prioritizing environmental sustainability and climate change as a future public health physician. During my medical training in the inner-city, I further saw how social, economic, and environmental factors shape health outcomes. These experiences only deepened my dedication to addressing the determinants of health. When I'm not musing about public health, you'll find me crosswording, running, or playing the ukulele.
