Current Student Interns

Kaitlyn Winters, Trinity ’23, is a sophomore from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania planning on studying Biology with minors in Global Health and French. She hopes to pursue a career in medicine in the future. Kaitlyn’s interest in working with the Center for Personalized Health Care reflects her desire to explore the relationships between physicians, patients, and the healthcare system in an effort to develop a more holistic understanding of patient care. In addition to working with the Center, Kaitlyn spends her time tutoring for chemistry courses, leading campus tours, and dancing with Duke’s student-run ballet company.

Maggie Pickard, Trinity ’21, is a senior at Duke University co-majoring in biology and global health. She hopes to eventually pursue a Master’s in Public Health or PhD in epidemiology. In the Fall of 2019, she studied abroad through DIS Copenhagen, studying in their Health Delivery and Prioritization program. This spurred her interest in creating individualized strategies within the United States healthcare system and drew her to interning at the Center for Personalized Healthcare. In addition to working at the Center, Maggie is currently pursuing an independent study with the Biology and Evolutionary Anthropology departments researching the connections between social environment and body size in wild baboons. Outside of academics, Maggie enjoys dancing with her two dance groups on campus as well as developing the Growing Health club at Duke to support a Rwandan NGO she interned with in 2019.

Mia Murphy, Trinity ’23, is a sophomore at Duke University, planning to major in Global Health and Romance Studies (Portuguese and Spanish). Mia is pre-health, and plans to attend medical school after college. Her interest in working with the Center stems from learning about the social determinants of health and a belief in how tailoring to specific elements in patient lifestyle and environment can generate the best health outcomes. Mia believes that through working at the center she will gain valuable knowledge about the health care system and be able to determine and solve gaps between the expectation of patient care versus its reality. Along with working at the center, Mia is a board member for the NAACP, MAPS and EIM, and volunteers around Durham. In her free time, she loves food, sports, and spending time with friends and family.

Michael Lee, Trinity ’22, is a junior from Chicago, Illinois studying Biology with a minor in English and Chemistry. In the future, he plans to pursue a career in medicine along with research, in hopes of helping medicine become more individualized. In working with the Center, he hopes to better understand longstanding issues that plague the healthcare system such as accessibility and equity, as well as how healthcare is rapidly changing for the future. In particular, he has a keen interest in a holistic approach to care by identifying hidden upstream factors that affect patient outcomes. Outside of his work at the Center, Michael conducts basic science research in a neurobiology lab that aims to develop therapies for chronic pain associated with various diseases. Michael also enjoys playing guitar, trying new food, dancing with DCD, and lifting at the gym.

Tyler Johnson, Trinity ’21, is a senior at Duke University and would like to major in either Neuroscience or Psychology and minor in Global Health. In the future, she plans to pursue a career in medicine with a goal of helping improve the health outcomes of diverse communities. Her interest in interning at the Center for Personalized Health Care stems from her belief that it is critical for physicians to have a holistic understanding of the facts which influence an individual’s health status. In addition to her work at the Center, Tyler enjoys working out, football and basketball, volunteering, and spending time with friends.
