Sally (Chan Mi) Jung, Graduate Fellow

Graduate Fellowship, 2022

Sally (Chan Mi) Jung, from Fairfield, California, will receive a Bachelor of Arts in Neuroscience from Northwestern in 2022. She moved to the U.S. from Korea at age 11 and quickly compiled an impressive academic resume while building her English-language skills. At Northwestern she has won several awards to support undergraduate research, and her research experience in neuroscience has resulted in more than 10 peer-reviewed articles and conference presentations. She has served in leadership roles for the Global Medical Mission Alliance club at Northwestern and, with several medical professional mentors, led a student trip to Tijuana, Mexico. This experience led to her strong commitment to public health, where her goal is to obtain the knowledge and professional skills necessary to advocate for access to equitable healthcare and the wellbeing of underserved communities. She will pursue a Master’s in Public Health in the Feinberg School of Medicine.
