Juan Carlos grew up in central Indiana where he also attended Wabash College and is a student at Indiana University School of Medicine. His interest in medicine was always intertwined with a fascination for public health, which is what led him to pursue his MPH at Harvard before completing medical school. While he first came to Harvard to learn about health inequities and the social-ecological approach to health, he has since become more interested in how policy-level interventions can alleviate disparities. Juan Carlos plans for a fulfilling career as a family doctor to the medically underserved. He wants to help lead primary care transformation and implement innovative community health strategies in my home state. He was attracted to the HGSLI because he wants to grow as a physician leader and better develop the skills necessary to advocate on behalf of his future patients. Outside of school, he plays the violin in his medical school’s orchestra and volunteers in our outreach clinic. He is also a fan TV comedies, especially “Parks and Recreation,” and enjoys (instagramming) the great outdoors, travels, the food he eats, and time spent with family and friends. He is deeply indebted to his parents, two of his greatest role models.
