We are excited to announce a recent addition to this summer’s Community Health Immersion 2013 (click to watch a 3-minute CHI video)! This team of 6 pre-medical students will live in and serve a local refugee community along with shadow providers at Siloam and reflect on God’s call to them to pursue a career in medicine.
Siloam community, meet:
Hometown: Westfield, NY
Undergraduate School: Rising senior at Houghton College in Houghton, NY.
Vocational Aspiration: Elias is majoring in biology with a public health minor. He is on a pre-medical track and plans to become a physician assistant. His long-term goal is to not only meet the physical needs of patients, but also to minister to their spiritual wellness. “I want to show my passion for other people through what I love doing – humbling myself to serve others.” He sees pursuing medicine as a way to touch lives and share the love of Christ.
