Isha Sanghvi, from Fremont, California, is pursuing an MD at Stanford School of Medicine. She graduated from the University of Southern California (USC) with a bachelor’s degree in neuroscience and a minor in social entrepreneurship. She aspires to become a physician-innovator who utilizes human-centered design, medicine, and entrepreneurship to build accessible tools in the overlooked spaces of women’s health and trauma-informed care. While at USC, Isha co-created Secure Remedy, a social enterprise which developed a wearable medication pouch to prevent medication theft for individuals experiencing homelessness and chronic health conditions. Motivated by her time as a California peer counselor for Los Angeles residents experiencing sexual violence, Isha joined the Valera Lab at Massachusetts General Hospital and co-led a study documenting the stories of women who sustained traumatic brain injuries from intimate partner violence.
