Through this program, I've gained mentor and peer relationships that I will carry throughout my pre-med journey and medical career. I hope to return home to practice, where these connections will prove especially valuable. A highlight of this program for me has been shadowing. I've loved observing the work of different surgical specialists and interacting with anesthesiologists in the OR.

The primary objective of my project with Dr. Loren Yamamoto was to determine rates of on-scene epinephrine administration in cases of peanut allergy anaphylaxis. Secondary objectives included identifying factors affecting rates of epinephrine administration –– such as age, sex, prior instances of anaphylaxis, location of anaphylaxis onset, and insurance coverage –– in order to spread awareness about the ways in which physicians might encourage proper use of epinephrine auto-injectors.
