My name is Anna and I am a premed-Post Bacc here at OSU. I have an undergraduate degree in Biomedical Science and a Master in Public Health with a focus in Community Health Education. I am very excited to be on the SHAB board because of the vision that SHAB has on influencing and improving the health and wellbeing of the OSU student body in collaboration with SHS. I find myself very fortunate to be a part of an enthusiastic group of “intelligent go getters” and “doers” this year and I am looking forward to seeing what we will accomplish together! If you have any questions about SHAB or are considering serving on the SHAB board, please feel free to reach out to me and I would love to tell you about our work.
Hello everyone my name is Jessica Lopez. I am a bio health science and Spanish Major with a minor in psychology with pre-PA option. I am currently working affiliated with Good Samaritan Hospital, ASOSU SafeRide, and Willamette Valley Toxicology. I enjoy working in the medial field and bringing a smile! I joined the Student Health Advisory Board because I enjoy doing public health and outreach in the OSU community.
As a nurse and leader, I have been lucky to work in many roles in a variety of healthcare organizations from public health to hospital systems and have found college health to be where my passion lies. I grew up in Corvallis, and am an OSU alumni, making me very passionate about connecting our student community to the greater Corvallis community.
Hello! I currently serve as the advisor for SHAB. I am grateful for this opportunity to work with such a wonderful group of student board members who are excited and passionate about healthcare and health equity. In addition to my advisor role, I currently serve as the Health Equity Specialist and Nutritionist at Student Health Services. My framework for each of these roles is informed by a social justice and relational lens. I care deeply about transforming our healthcare systems into equitable and loving places for care and healing. In my spare time I enjoy cooking and baking, reading, podcasts, and long meandering walks/adventures.
