Emily Gentile, MS3
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 time as a medical student. At UMass Med, Emily co-founded “UMMS Students for Climate Action,” a student group focused on education, advocacy, research, and service related to all things climate and medicine, and assisted with student programming during this year’s virtual Earth Week celebration. She is immensely excited to be serving another year as a research co-chair with MS4SF and looks forward to connecting with students from across the country who share similar values.
