PALO ALTO CHAPTER
My name is Juliana Fong, and I attend Stanford University. I graduated from Westridge School in 2022 as the Valedictorian.
I have a deep love for science and medicine. Since 2018, I’ve served as a research intern at the University of Southern California Keck School of Medicine. I’m a co-author of several USC research papers, covering a variety of health topics ranging from COVID-19 stressors to substance use among Latinxs in California. As an on the ground volunteer, I’ve also prepared survey questions, recruited participants, and analyzed statistics at USC’s COVID-19 Pandemic Research Center. In addition, I regularly shadow the surgery team at Long Beach Memorial Medical Center.
I’m also eager to serve young people and the community. As a government official, I’ve implemented policies and programs to promote environmental sustainability and to prevent the
sale of recreational drugs to children. I’ve also addressed health and educational inequities experienced by minorities and low-income groups. To continue countering these inequities, I’m excited to provide low-income youth with the tools and resources to help them succeed in STEM
