Lindsey Lee, 2018-19 Honzel Fellow
Honzel Fellow Lindsey Lee is a senior Public Health major and Biology and Anthropology double minor from Eugene, Oregon. After graduating from SCU this June, she plans on pursuing a career as a physician assistant. In terms of her career specialty, she is interested in Obstetrics and Gynecology as well as Primary Care. As a Public Health major, she is interested in the various determinants of health, which she hopes will allow her in the future to practice a style of medicine that is not only driven from the individual patient-perspective, but from an interdependent community one as well.
For the past two years, she has been a research intern at Slocum Orthopedic Center in Eugene, OR, where she's been conducting a retrospective, case-control study on the effects of marijuana usage on bone fracture healing and patient follow-up patterns. Through her internship, she was able to write her first manuscript, which she will be submitting this fall. Outside of working at Slocum, she also volunteered at Eugene's local hospital, Riverbed Hospital, for the past two summers.
Outside of school, she loves to cook, spend time with her family and friends, explore California, and exercise.
Her favorite quote is: "Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts."
