Sarah Andebrhan is a second-year medical student at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA. Born in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia to parents from Eritrea and raised in Long Beach, she obtained her bachelor’s degree from Columbia University in neuroscience and behavior. She then went on to receive a dual master’s in biomedical sciences and public health with a concentration in health services management and policy from Tufts University. Her own undocumented status throughout her childhood inspired the selection of her graduate thesis on the biological impact of stress in communities of low socioeconomic status, with a focus on immigrant populations. She is currently a graduate student researcher at the Center for Health Policy Research at UCLA, supporting efforts to evaluate the PRIME project under Medi-Cal’s 2020 Waiver. In her free time, Sarah enjoys musicals and concerts, reading, traveling, and connecting with friends.
