Maheetha Bharadwaj, a junior majoring in Biology, is very excited to be directing a TGB. After volunteering at a cancer center in high school, Maheetha garnered an interest in medicine, especially palliative medicine. Maheetha is particularly interested in using music and dance as therapy for youth development, health, growth, and education. As she proceed through my undergraduate career, I would also like to gain perspective on cross-cultural medicine. As a TGB leader, Maheetha hopes to introduce to the students her passion for medicine and palliative care, and take them on a journey as they examine their own passion for medicine. Maheetha wishes to pursue a medical degree, specializing in pediatric medicine or palliative medicine (or both!). In her free time, she loves dancing, singing, hanging out with friends, going to the movies, and discovering new ways to introduce herself to someone. She look forward to meeting her students.
