Hristina Shopova, MD Candidate
Growing up, I think I’ve always wanted to be a medical doctor. And within the course of my studies I really came to understand the importance of a strong public health system. I think that creating an optimal health care system cannot be approached purely from a medical point of view. Instead, it needs more areas of expertise to be taken into consideration.
To further realise this idea, I became involved with Young Leaders for Health, joining the organising committee for the YLH Social Entrepreneurship Challenge on eHealth. This project gives young people from different backgrounds a platform to share their thoughts and ideas with their colleagues and peers and, more importantly, to act on them.
That is why I feel incredibly privileged to be a part of this and watch up close young people launching a sustainable project on eHealth. I look forward to seeing the human mind at its finest, and will do everything in my power to support and help the participants.
