Anne Coogan
Vanderbilt University School of Medicine

Anne is currently a fourth-year medical student at Vanderbilt University. She grew up in Nashville, Tennessee, and graduated from Georgia Tech with a bachelor’s degree in Biomedical Engineering.

During medical school, she developed a passion for geriatric populations and the concept of “aging well.” In pursuing this passion, she learned that aging well included quality end-of-life care (EOLC). As such, she has dedicated time in medical school to better understanding EOLC. This has included researching how to talk to patients about end-of-life care and providing her peers with educational opportunities about end-of-life care. She is applying into Neurology.

Her research focuses on minority populations with the goal to reduce health disparities. Hallen has an interest in language barriers and has also used her Vietnamese language skills in many ways, such as the creation of COVID-19 Fact Check.


Anuvir Singh
University of California San Francisco School of Medicine

Born and raised in rural Punjab, India, Anuvir immigrated to Fresno, California, at age 13. During high school, his involvement in the Doctors Academy Program provided him a foundation to begin exploring the medical sciences through academic courses, clinical mentorships and community internships in Fresno County. He attended UCLA and graduated with a B.S. in Psychobiology.

Anuvir reconnected with his community roots as he moved back to Fresno to work as an ED scribe. This clinical experience prompted his interest in underserved medicine and exposed him to healthcare disparities in the Central Valley. At UCSF, he is a part of the PRIME-US program, a dual degree track dedicated to training students with interest in urban underserved populations. Anuvir is applying into ED residency this upcoming cycle and is passionate about immigrant/refugee health, farmworker health and medical education.
