Daniel SanchezCo-Funding Chair
Originally from New Jersey, Daniel graduated in May of 2007 from the NYU College of Arts and Science with a B.A. in History. While in school, he collaborated with two of his enthusiastic associates to spearhead the establishment "Medical Dialogue Review," a student-run journal that emphasized the relationship between medicine and the humanities. He hopes that his background in the study of humanities will allow him to approach the field of medicine with a different perspective. Daniel is currently a first-year student at The Mount Sinai School of Medicine. He took a year off between graduating college and starting medical school to conduct proteomics lab research on a disorder known as Sarcoidosis, which primarily affects African-Americans. He currently serves as a clinic manager at the East Harlem Health Outreach Partnership (EHHOP), a student-directed free medical clinic for uninsured residents of East Harlem. He also currently serves as President of Students for Equal Opportunity in Medicine (SEOM), an organization which focuses on activities and issues that promote improving health outcomes for minority communities. As a physician, Daniel aims to participate in the effort to address health disparities and eliminate obstacles to medical care. In his free time, Daniel is an avid sports enthusiast and fan of the New York Knicks.
