Dhivya Sridar, from Novi, Mich., received her bachelors of Arts in Neuroscience in 2018 (summa cum laude) and has since been enrolled as a medical student at Northwestern’s Feinberg School of Medicine. While in medical school, she co-founded a chapter of Chicago Street Medicine, a non-profit organization providing medical care to people experiencing unsheltered homelessness. She has served as president of the Feinberg Student Senate and is active in myriad volunteer organizations dedicated to social justice and public health. This commitment to social justice led Dhivya to take a leave of absence from Feinberg to enroll in a Master’s program in journalism at Medill. Her goal is to combine her expertise as a physician and investigative journalist to expose structural injustice in the healthcare system and to work toward improved health outcomes for marginalized groups.
