What Motivates Me to Pursue a Career in Medicine and What Attracts me to the UMKC six year Medical Program? My main motivation towards pursuing a career in medicine is my friend Russel who suffers from a severe medical condition that requires chemotherapy and home treatment regimens.

I have served as regular volunteer of the Canton community revolving around inner city families, particularly homeless families promoting the importance of nutrition and the components of well-being and I have served as a mentor for three years teaching basic concepts of biological sciences.
