Frances was born and raised in Canada, and she earned an Honors Bachelor of Science from Queen’s University in Ontario. A serendipitous decision to pursue a health and literacy internship near Varanasi, India, became the starting point for an incredibly meaningful 9 years, working in the field of international health as a community organizer, public health researcher, and now, as a medical professional. She received a Master’s of Public Health from Columbia University and has worked across sub-Saharan Africa and North America. Through her travels, she has found joy in learning with and from diverse, underserved communities and has sought opportunities to advance social justice. She attended Saint Louis University School of Medicine and trained in Internal Medicine at Cambridge Health Alliance (CHA) in Massachusetts, where she is now Chief Resident. Currently, she is honing her skills as a clinician educator through the Harvard Macy Institute and evaluating missed opportunities for pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) at CHA. Her favorite pastimes include trekking through the alps on the Tour du Mont Blanc and trail running in Cape Town. She recently ran the 2019 NYC marathon. She is fortunate to have a supportive and whimsical partner who also shares her love for the field of infectious diseases.

Medicare for All: The Healthcare Our Nation Needs

Over a month into the new year and feels like the world around us is in grave peril. There are many reasons to lose hope: the climate crisis with Australia’s wildfires, the evolving COVID-19 epidemic, the acquittal of the President’s impeachment charges, and the list goes on.

Reflections of an Aspiring Clinician-Educator

A challenging 1586-meter summit that offered magnificent views of Lake Wanaka and snow-capped mountains of the Southern Alps.
