Read Linnea's Story

"After earning my Master of Arts in education with a focus on adolescent science education, I found myself teaching at-risk youth in New York City, when I quickly noticed just how lacking the opportunities were for these children. A student approached me and entrusted me with a rather serious health concern, and that’s when it hit me. I have the power to enact change. I’d always been interested in making a difference through healthcare and volunteering, and Columbia University Postbac Premed Program was definitely the right step. Now I’m on the path to making healthcare more accessible for the next generation."

You have the power to enact change.
