Priya Raja is a third-year medical student at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center and the current Stanford-ABC News Global Health and Media Fellow. Priya brings a multidimensional skillset to the fellowship spanning social science, health policy, advocacy, medicine, mobile health and design. She first realized the “power of the pen” while documenting stories of women undergoing cervical cancer treatment in Cape Town, South Africa, which led to policy reform to improve access to cancer screening and care in the province. She aims to combine her medical training with her passion for writing and storytelling to amplify global health challenges and advocate for change. Priya holds a B.A. in Public Policy Studies, with a focus on Health and Human Rights, from the University of Chicago.
