Charbel Bou-Khalil, MS1

is a first-year medical student at Stanford university, pursuing a scholarly concentration in health services and policy research with an application in Quality Improvement. He was born and raised in Lebanon, before immigrating to the US in 2014. He graduated from UCLA in 2019 with a degree in Biology and a minor in biomedical research. During his time in undergrad, Charbel was heavily engaged with the transfer community, and he still serves as a premed mentor for incoming community college transfer students at UCLA. Charbel is passionate about engaging with populations in areas of the world like Lebanon where conflict and political instability are endemic. In particular, Charbel is interested in understanding the impact of early childhood stress, how resilience can be leveraged as a protective factor, and how to develop and implement sustainable, low-cost interventions to equip children with healthy coping mechanisms as they navigate chronic stressors.  During his free time, Charbel enjoys playing soccer, ultimate frisbee, and biking

Davis Chhoa, MS1

is a first-year medical student from Dallas, Texas. Davis ventured westward to pursue his undergraduate degree in Human Biology at Stanford University. During his time in college, Davis developed his interests for community health and public service through his involvement as a health educator at Pacific Free Clinic, student leader in the Stanford Asian American community, and Alternative Spring Break program leader. Davis also worked on community-engaged research investigating intergenerational perceptions of well-being among the Cambodian American community in the San Francisco Bay Area. After graduating from college, Davis served as a Bill Emerson National Hunger Fellow to help address issues of food and economic insecurity at CAPI USA, a immigrant/refugee social service organization, and The Root Cause Coalition, a national health equity coalition based in Washington, D.C.
