Wesia Malik is from Newington, CT and graduated from CREC Medical Professions and Teacher Preparation Academy. She’ll be joining the Rowe Scholars Program as a physiology and neurobiology major. As part of HCOP Wesia was able to sit in on lectures given by health professionals. She’s also had the opportunity to intern at Saint Francis Hospital in the central sterile supply unit, and this summer she shadowed a cardiologist. Just as Wesia has sought out experiences to learn more about medicine, she also took the opportunity to visit Israel and Palestine to learn more about the conflict there.
