Soonmyung Hwang, BS
Soonmyung graduated from the Johns Hopkins University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Neuroscience and Public Health Studies, and will work towards a medical degree in the near future, with the hope of going into the field of neurology. Soonmyung currently works full-time at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine in Baltimore, Maryland, where he conducts clinical and global health research on multiple sclerosis. In addition to his scientific interests, he is passionate about serving disadvantaged and underserved populations, especially refugee and migrant populations. Soonmyung has previously served as a Health and Wellness Program intern at World Relief Chicago, a faith-based non-profit organization that serves the essential needs of refugees and other immigrants. He hopes to cultivate all his interests to serve as a neurologist and engage in global health efforts against the burden of neurological disorders, particularly in low-resourced regions.
