University of California San Francisco
Karly Hampshire is a fourth year medical student at the University of California San Francisco planning on applying into internal medicine residency. She is the founder and current co-director of the Planetary Health Report Card initiative and recently completed a fellowship with the University of California Carbon Neutrality Initiative. Building on her interests in medical education and climate health, she will be taking a gap year beginning this summer to pursue a research project investigating the infectious disease outcomes associated with extreme weather events in people with HIV, further develop the PHRC initiative, help launch the new UCSF Center for Climate, Health, and Equity, and work on climate curriculum development efforts at UCSF. In her spare time, she enjoys long meandering walks with no destination, park days, and recently has developed a passion for pottery. She sees climate solutions as opportunities to build a healthier, more equitable world and feels grateful to work with such an incredible community of like-minded people.
