Angela Zhang, MD'21

2019-2020 ODMA Diversity Fellow


Originally from Seattle, WA, Angela graduated from Duke University with a self-designed major, Mass Media & Cross-Cultural Perception, which explored the ways media shape us, with an emphasis on the experience of immigrant families. She lived in Baltimore before AMS, doing research in Parkinson's and becoming involved in Asian Pacific Islander American (APIA) activism. At Alpert, her interests have included refugee/immigrant health, the health impacts of climate change, sexual health/reproductive justice, and API advocacy and allyship. In her future career, Angela hopes to continue to advocate with underserved communities and to produce responsible health journalism that normalizes stigmatized topics.
