MD candidate at Tufts University


Medicine, Religious studies, Ethics, Business


Hi! My name is Avery and I'm a current MD/MBA student. I have a wide range of interests, with a previous degree in Religious Studies and Ethics, and have a passion for community-oriented work! Outside of my career, I love spending time with my wiener dog and enjoying lovely hikes around Massachusetts.

Project ideas

Project ideas are meant to help inspire student thinking about their own project. Students are in the driver seat of their research and are free to use any or none of the ideas shared by their mentors.

Community Focused Health Analysis

Population data on disease within a particular geographic region is critical to both clinicians and health systems. It helps inform strategic decisions on how to tailor services to particular patient population. This project would describe and analyze rates of disease incidence within a specific community of interest and provide ideas for targeted solutions.

How Does Aristotle Inform Decision-Making at the End of Life in the U.S. Healthcare System?

All medical decisions are grounded in moral values, and clinicians ought to have an ethical framework to guide their decision-making process. This project will apply principles of Aristotle's seminal work, Nicomachean Ethics, to topics of end-of-life decision-making such as artificial nutrition, code status changes, and brain death.

How has Modern U.S. Religion Evolved?

Understanding recent trends in U.S. religion is critical to providing culturally-tailored services in both healthcare and other nonprofit fields. This project will analyze both publicly available data and key texts to describe recent trends in religious affiliation and identity.

Innovative Iphone App for Health Monitoring

Healthcare is trending towards increasing personalization of health data tracking. This project will propose an innovative app to track and record relevant health data as it pertains to patients with diabetes to improve their health related outcomes.

Coding skills


Teaching experience

I have a range of both formal and informal mentorship experiences. Formally, I taught groups of first-year and third-year medical students principles of clinical reasoning. Informally, I have mentored groups of undergraduate students in hospice volunteer work in which I taught them how to work with patients at the end of life and reflect how their experiences might impact their careers in medicine or nonprofits. I've also assisted pre-med students in their applications to medical school by finding ways to highlight their strengths in the application process.
