Littlejohn to present research paper

Ashanti Littlejohn of Bethlehem was one of three second-year medical students at Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine who conducted research to evaluate the lived experiences of first-generation medical students. The students were invited to present their findings for a poster presentation at the American Association of Medical Colleges Group on Student Affairs, Careers in Medicine and Organization of Student Representatives Professional Development Conference in Chicago and as a workshop at the 2020 National Conference on Race and Ethnicity in New York City.

The “Make the InVISIBLE Visible: First-Generation Students’ Experiences in Medical Education” research was conducted as part of GCSOM’s Summer Research Immersion Program.
