Mission Statement of the EVMS SGA

The EVMS Student Government Association exists to promote leadership, service and a sense of solidarity between the various classes and organizations at Eastern Virginia Medical School. As the head of student government, our role is to represent the EVMS student body to the staff, faculty, administration and alumni. Our strategic goals are to better our school, our community and our society at large by encouraging social responsibility and supporting active participation in student government, student organizations and service to our communities. We believe in an open culture of progress and change; and, ultimately as a group, we believe that we can foster and help sustain efforts that lead us all towards a better and brighter future.

Hello! I am an EVMS MPH candidate (class of 2021) with future career aspirations in public health policy issues such as equitable access to healthcare, health insurance, and big pharmaceutical corporations.

I am enthusiastic about connecting with constituents and campus leaders to prioritize the health, safety, and wellness of the EVMS student body. I intend to advocate specifically for mental health resources and work closely with the new student clinic on campus. In my free time, I enjoy spending time outside, cooking, and playing board games with friends.
