STUDENT STORY

CARLYNCIA MCDOWELL MPH, Health Policy & Management Carlyncia aims to work within healthcare, focusing on health disparities, diversity, equity, inclusion (DEI), mental health, and health policy.

“As an aspiring healthcare leader, I believe it is essential to focus on health disparities as everyone should be able to reach their full health potential. However, it is evident within our society that inequities have continued to persist within underserved and marginalized communities. With aid from this scholarship, I have curated safe spaces to talk about these inequities and have open and honest conversations about racial injustices and the importance of diversity and representation within the healthcare system.” Give to the Health Disparities Fund https://t.uga.edu/7PB (case sensitive)


HEALTH SCIENCES CAMPUS STUDENT FOOD PANTRY Provides non-perishable and frozen food items to students struggling with food insecurity with suport from the Epidemiology and Biostatistics Fund. UGA studies are demanding, and some students are burdened with the additional worry of food insecurity on top of their traditional obligations. Discretionary dollars available through the Epidemiology and Biostatistics Fund provide the financial support necessary for the HSC Food Pantry to ensure students are able to thrive, focus, and enjoy their college experience. Gifts of any amount make an impact by providing meals with just a few dollars. With Kim’s financial support, the pantry was able to purchase a freezer, providing even more options for students with frozen products.
