Michelle Didero was born in San Francisco and grew up in SF and Walnut Creek. She went to UC Davis and worked in the student-run clinic, Clinica Tepati, which predominantly served Sacramento’s Latino population. Upon graduating from UC Davis in 2012, she moved to Washington D.C. to work for an education-based non-profit called City Year. Through counseling high school students and running group tutoring and after-school programs, she worked to improve student retention and academic performance. Michelle completed a post-baccalaureate at UCSF and is now a second year medical student in the UCLA PRIME program. She plans to use her dual degrees as a platform for health justice advocacy and policy change to improve long-term health outcomes, especially in underserved populations.
