Christiana Fowlkes capped her college career with service this semester on an American Psychiatric Association Presidential Task Force. Along with physicians from across the nation, Fowlkes has been helping to create a white paper that looks at the availability of psychiatric beds in the country and seeks ways to reduce the need for emergency hospitalizations. Her work on the task force follows years of undergraduate research focused on medicine and women’s advocacy. She has interned at Johns Hopkins Hospital and recently completed her second summer of training in the Rural and Urban Scholars in Community Health program. A Posse scholar from Washington, D.C., she is earning a bachelor’s degree in biology, with a certificate in women’s and gender studies. She plans to attend medical school.
