Why do you volunteer for the APDA MA Chapter?

When did you first join the Board?

I first began working with the APDA MA Chapter and the Information & Referral Center in 2009, as a research assistant at Boston University Medical Campus. After completing my degree in 2011, I returned to BU and joined the Board as an Advisor. I became a Member-at-Large in 2012.
