About Asadullah: In his time at UC Davis, Asadullah Awan worked extensively to provide underserved and uninsured communities access to culturally sensitive healthcare. He worked in the community as the following: Outreach Coordinator for Shifa Clinic (a free student-run clinic at UC Davis), Vice President of Minority Association for Pre-Medical Students, and co-founder of Diabetes Advocacy and Awareness Group. His involvement in the community and his first-hand observations of the disparities in healthcare showed him the importance of an intersection between public health and medicine in effectively helping underserved communities. It is with that intention and great zeal that he will be working towards a MPH from UC Davis.
