Fitness has become really important to me throughout this program. I really enjoy long-distance running. I train with an alumnus of Emory's MD/PHD program for various half-marathon races. I also enjoy taking spin classes in Midtown with fellow MD/PhD-er Amanda Mener. During the weekend, you can always find me running on the beltline or exploring some of the amazing restaurants in the area!
