Chitra Parikh

Hi! My name is Chitra, and I’m a junior from central Jersey. I’m concentrating in Architecture with a certificate in Global Health and Health Policy. On campus, outside of Service Focus, I’m involved with the Undergraduate Student Government (USG) and Naacho Dance Company. During my free time, I love to dance and take random walks around campus. This year, as a Junior Fellow, I’m excited to continue exploring how we can better integrate service into our own, unique identities on campus. (I was a member of the Education cohort last year.) For the healthcare cohort this year, I’m particularly interested in the intersection between creativity and medicine and how that translates into more human-centered practices in healthcare. Feel free to reach out if you ever want to chat about service, innovation, pre-med or anything at all! I’m looking forward to a great year with all of you.
