Harleen Marwah is a Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Major from Upland, CA. Her passion for social justice has always held an important place in her heart, but really took root during her fellowship year under "Young People for," a year-long progressive leadership program. Harleen aspires towards medical school, and plans to use her voice as an M.D. to facilitate communication between the science, business, and policy worlds. At USC, Harleen works at the USC Office for Wellness and Health Promotion, serves as the Outreach Coordinator for Students Taking Action in the Name of Diversity, and is establishing the undergraduate ambassador program for USC's Keck School of Medicine. In addition to this, she works with V.N.A. Home Health Care making bereavement calls to families, is a research assistant at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles, and helped develop the curriculum for a Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder recovery program for veterans. Harleen finds herself constantly drawing connections between her seemingly polar interests and has come to appreciate the value of interdisciplinary studies. She believes that life is all about connections, from organisms' common DNA coding patterns to the health behavior model's applicability to civic engagement. As such, she sees the effective communication between the science, business, and government sectors as not only beneficial, but crucial to the future of public health. Harleen is thrilled to learn, grow, and exchange ideas this year in the SBL Scholars' Program.
