Hannah Spotts, MS2
Pennsylvania State College of Medicine
Hannah is a second year medical student at Penn State College of Medicine. She studied Molecular Biology and Geography at Colgate University where she became interested in the connections between the environment and health. In her time at Colgate, she became interested in the geography of environmental exposures, especially as they pertain to health injustice. Hannah has spent the majority of her life living in small rural towns, which has driven her interests in plant-based diets and sustainable agriculture. At Penn State, she has been involved with the student-run group, Environmental Health and Medicine, as well as the Sustainability Council. Hannah hopes to become a primary care physician who can provide climate-informed care to her patients and communities. She is excited to join the MS4SF team this year and learn from an incredible community of future physicians and environmental justice advocates.
