Mapping out the future of communities

A Penn alumnus at the forefront of environmental justice

“Far too often our poor or minority communities bear the brunt of the nation’s ecological harms,” shares Matthew Lee (Master of Environmental Studies ’08). Matt is an Environmental Protection Specialist in the Office of Enforcement Compliance and Environmental Justice with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

“I want to be able to diagnose and treat patients when there is a lack of medical imaging techniques, blood tests or expensive facilities,” shares Jaemi Chu, a pre-med with her sights set on missionary and global public health work. “Being able to help patients with osteopathic medical treatment is one of the main reasons why I chose the Doctor of Osteopathy (DO) path.”

“The faculty at Penn are some of the best,” recalls Kenny Leung an engineer-turned-med-student who completed the Pre-Health Core program in spring, 2016. “How the professors treat you and value your opinions is unlike any other school. If you don’t understand something, they will sit with you during office hours and work with you one-on-one.”
