PreMed & PreHealth Student Ambassadors

The PreMed and PreHealth Student Ambassador Program is a dedicated initiative designed to support PreMed and PreHealth students on their academic and career paths.

Through virtual Drop-In meetings, our program connects NU individuals on PreMed and PreHealth Pathways with experienced Student Ambassadors, fostering personalized mentorship that addresses individual goals and challenges. From academic excellence and career exploration to professional development and community building, our Student Ambassadors provide a holistic approach to navigate you through Northeastern University’s opportunities and resources and valuable insights for finding success in a PreMed or PreHealth Pathway.

The Northeastern University Student Ambassador Program is committed to creating an environment where all students, regardless of background, feel empowered to pursue their healthcare aspirations. Benefit from peer mentorship and celebrate shared successes within a supportive network. This program is not just about academic achievement; it’s about fostering connections, building confidence, and preparing the next generation of healthcare professionals for a fulfilling and impactful future.

Helen Ji

Major: Biochemistry
Minor: Ethics
Pathway: PreMed

Hi! I’m Helen, and I’m a 5th year Biochemistry major with an Ethics minor. I’d be happy to provide peer-to-peer mentorship and support on your pre health path! I’ve done three research co-ops and lots of volunteering, and I am on the pre-med track myself! Feel free to ask me about anything!

Kennedy Thompson

Status: Fourth Year
Major: Health Science
Minor: Nutrition & Global Health
Pathway: PreMed

Hi! My name is Kennedy Thompson and I am a 4th year Health Science student with double minors in Global Health and Nutrition. I’m doing 5 years here at Northeastern before getting my MPH through Northeastern’s +1 program. Over the past four years, I have volunteered at BMC, Community Servings and BIDMC. I participate in systematic research here on campus and am a part of a pre-health professional honor society. I have also served as a mentor in various ways over the years. I completed my first co-op at Alnylam Pharmaceuticals working as a research assistant and am currently on my second co-op at BIDMC working as a PCT. I am more than willing to discuss my own pre-health journey and the things I have learned along the way as I am here to support others as they navigate their own pre-health journeys. Please drop in and ask me about anything!

In my free time, I volunteer at a women’s shelter and am an active member in both a sorority and pre-medical fraternity here on campus. I’d be happy to discuss my path and thoughts on the pre-health journey with you; feel free to drop in and ask any questions!
