Yoditt W. Getachew Co-Membership and Recruitment Clinic Officer Bachelor of Sciences, Ryerson University
Hi! My name is Yoditt and I am a 3rd year nursing student. Throughout my academic career in Nursing I always had a great passion to work within the community with vulnerable populations rather than in the hospital. Over the years, I have come to understand that there is a greater emphasis on healthcare just within hospitals’ walls and not enough attention to the social injustice and poverty that heavily contributes to one’s health predominately located on the streets. So by joining MEDLIFE, it will not just open doors but my heart to provide help to those that need it the most. Please join us in the journey in MEDLIFE Ryerson. Thank you!

Hey, my name is Jillian! I’m a student with a passion in caring for minority populations and tackling global health issues. It all ignited when I started the Nursing program at Ryerson and then volunteered as a student nurse on a medical mission trip to Guatemala over the past summer. The experience was life-changing and it inspired me to make the transfer to Biomediacal Sciences where I plan to become a medical doctor with a focus on global health. Working with this amazing team in our Ryerson MEDLIFE chapter has truly inspired me and hopefully we can inspire you. Never be afraid of doing what your passionate about and if you need help along the way, you’ve always got me by your side! Together, we can do amazing things!
