University of Massachusetts Medical School
Emily Gentile is a third year medical student in the Global and Urban Health Pathways at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. Emily first became interested in the interconnections between the environment and health during her coursework as an undergraduate public health major at the George Washington University, and this passion has continued to grow throughout her first two years in medical school. At UMass Med, Emily helped to found “UMMS Students for Climate Action,” a student group focused on education, advocacy, research, and service related to all things climate and medicine, and also assisted with student programming during this year’s virtual Earth Week celebration. She is immensely excited to be joining MS4SF as a research co-chair, and looks forward to connecting with students from across the country who share similar values.
