Kimberly Manyanga is currently pursuing her degree in Public Health at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. She plans to proceed directly to their accelerated master’s in public health program after completing her bachelor’s degree. She said, “I’m particularly interested in the maternal and childcare sector of healthcare equity and hope to one day become an OB/GYN serving underserved communities.” Kimberly developed her interest in this professional path through experience as a Clinical Research Apprentice at Lahey Hospital and in an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) certification course during her time at Billerica Memorial High School. She has been active in her local Zimbabwean and church communities as well and has worked in food service and childcare.
