Helen Berhane, COP 2019

2019 TUC ALUMNI ASSOCIATION SCHOLARSHIP RECIPIENT

helenAs a first generation American, my less than privileged background has generated my innate gravitation towards service projects. I received my bachelor’s degree in Psychobiology from UCLA, and am currently in the doctorate of pharmacy program at Touro University California. Throughout this time, I engaged in many service projects ranging from drug abuse education for at risk youth, organizing a benefit banquet for the Somali drought crisis, and developing new programs as the pharmacy programs coordinator for the Touro Student Run Free Clinic. My future plans include continuing health service to underserved communities and higher education mentorship for diverse youth.
