“The clinicians at Saban have been phenomenal teachers by showing me not only how to implement the medical sciences, but also how to deliver care that is compassionate and conscious of the social determinants of health. This summer at Saban has made me really reflect on what it means to be a physician. I have learned to never stop being curious about the person behind the lab results. This humanity should continue to be the essence and drive behind my practice. For this, I thank the clinicians at Saban for teaching me how to maintain a balance between science and society. Because of my experience at Saban, I know I will be able to be a voice for those whose voices are often lost the healthcare system. I will carry the lessons I have learned at Saban this summer throughout the rest of my career.”
