Vivian is an MS5/5 from Canada currently at Stanford School of Medicine. She immigrated from China with her family at age two, grew up on the North Shore, Vancouver, and moved to the US to study at Stanford University where she graduated in 2019 with a BA in Music and a BS in Biology. During college, she conducted research with the Stanford Translational Auditory Research Lab and was awarded the Robert M. Golden Medal for her senior recital in piano performance. Since coming to the Bay Area, Vivian has been heavily involved with youth engagement in API health disparities awareness through her work with free clinics and hepatitis B advocacy organizations. In medical school, she has continued to focus on community engagement as through her involvement with the Asian Pacific American Medical Student Association (APAMSA) Stanford chapter and national board. She spent this past year pursuing an MPH at the Chinese University of Hong Kong, funded through the Stanford Chi-Li Pao Foundation Fellowship, and is passionate about sustainability and ethics in global surgery. Vivian has been a volunteer mentor for pre-medical students since starting medical school, and hopes to continue passing along the wisdom she has gathered from her own mentors.
