Juhi serves as the Healthcare and Program Management Intern for GTMRx. She is currently pursuing a second bachelors in Community Health with a minor in global health at George Mason University. She is graduating Fall 2021. She obtained a bachelor’s of science in biology from Virginia Polytechnic and State University in 2020.
During her time at Virginia Tech, Juhi worked at the Laboratory of Disease Ecology and Biogeography, where she helped develop a map of current surveillance systems in the United States for chronic wasting disease in deer. Knowledge of current systems are necessary, due to the possibility of chronic wasting disease jumping from deer to humans. Juhi also cowrote and published a paper in the Virginia Journal of Public Health, focusing on a one health approach to solving health issues that stem from marine health. From these experiences she became interested in how diseases travel and affect population health.
She decided to continue this interest and pursue public health further at George Mason. Throughout this time to present, Juhi has been volunteering for the Medical Reserve Corps. In Loudoun County, VA she has staffed the COVID-19 hotline, participated in mobile COVID-19 testing, and volunteered at vaccination sites. In addition, she is trained to be on the Epidemiology Team, when she volunteered in Montgomery County, VA. These experiences have led her to want to help solve health inequities through the development of programs that will serve the community. She hopes to learn about program development and management at GTMRx, as well as, contribute her knowledge of biology and public health to the current teams.
