Vall Vinaithirthan is a rising senior studying Biology at UC Santa Barbara hoping to pursue an MD/MPH in the future. She is the CaHPSA Chapter Leader and Project White Coat Director at UC Santa Barbara, both of which she founded in January 2017.
Vall stumbled across CaHPSA in October 2016 at the UC Davis Pre-health Conference and has since been a member; she is thrilled to further her experience with the organization as a CaPA board member. During her time as a board member, Vall hopes to use her student experience to bring a unique perspective to CaPA and represent the SoCal CaHPSA district to the best of her ability.
In her free time, she can be found volunteering for Doctors Without Walls (Santa Barbara’s free health clinic), handling embryos in her lab, or spending time with friends on one of Santa Barbara’s beautiful beaches.
