Mark is currently a third-year medical student at the University of California-Irvine and is the 2017-2018 Stanford-CNN Global Health & Media Fellow. He holds a Masters in Global Health Sciences from the University of California-San Francisco and pursued his undergraduate education at Stanford University, where he double-majored in Human Biology and Film & Media Studies as a member of the class of 2006. After college, Mark worked as an Associate Producer at National Geographic Television in New York for four years, focusing on a television series called “Lockdown” that documented life in America’s prison system. More recently, he worked as a Health Systems Coordinator for Partners In Health in Malawi where he worked alongside the Ministry of Health to upgrade a rural health center into a community hospital. Looking forward, Mark hopes to combine his medical training with his documentary film background to advocate for healthcare issues faced by vulnerable populations both domestically and abroad.
