ALAN is a first generation, minority student born in California, raised in Mexico and residing in Florida. He specifically chose Allegheny College because of its strong pre-health program and liberal arts education. Allegheny helped him gauge his interest and provided him with the resources to pursue internships and shadowing opportunities that helped make the decision to practice medicine as a physician. Activities Alan was involved with include Delta Tau Delta fraternity and the first vice president of the Minority Association of Pre medical Students (MAPS) established this past year. His future plans include enrolling in the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine this fall as an MD candidate.
