Project Description

Salwa is a first year medical student at the University of Toronto and is a graduate of McMaster University with a MSc in Health Research Methodology with a Clinical Epidemiology Specialization. She is passionate about social justice and advocacy and seeks to use her platform as a healthcare provider to advance the status of underprivileged citizens through micro and [one-day] macro-level changes in and outside of the confinements of formal institutional boundaries. Salwa’s introspective nature has led her to utilize her spare time to publish a book titled Yours in Writing, which served as an avenue to externalize her lived experiences and emotions.
