If you have any questions or if you just want to talk football or music feel free to contact me.

Jose Lopez

I am currently pursuing a degree in biology. I hope to gain admission to a medical school in the next couple of years. I consider myself an active and outdoorsy type of person, I’ve grown up camping, fishing, and hunting all my life, but I’m no stranger to the couch and I’ve enjoyed video games since the old Super Nintendo. We just had a great year with APHP, and look forward to another successful run. Don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions regarding anything from the club mechanics, to advice about campus or even where to get a good meal.

2016-2017 Treasurers

Tonny Zhou

Currently seeking my Bachelors in Biological Sciences. After graduation I will be setting my sights on Touro University. When I'm not studying you can find me watching tv shows about medicine, space, and food. Gordon Ramsey is one of my many inspirations. I want to take the same passion he has for food and super fine attention to detail, and bring it into the world of medicine. The graduated cylinder is always half full and things can always be more efficient. I bring originality and a great work ethic to the table, while still being able to laugh along the way. Don’t let anything get in the way of your dreams and bring lots of sunblock. The future is going to be bright for all of us.

Vicky Szeto

I will be completing my bachelors degree in biology with a minor in psychology this fall, and next year I plan on applying for medical school. I currently volunteer at Volunteers in Medicine of Southern Nevada. The time I spent at this clinic truly opened my eyes to the lack of affordable healthcare in our community, and it feels very rewarding to work alongside those who are passionate about helping others. Aside from studying and extracurricular activities, I enjoy working out and trying new food. I am very obsessed with Game of Thrones, Medieval- and Greek mythology-based movies, weird documentaries, and corgis. I love corgis. If any of you have comments, questions, or concerns related to school or APHP, do not hesitate to contact me. I am gladly looking forward to volunteering with you all.

I enjoy capturing my life through video and film as a memory or diary of my growth as a person. I also enjoy playing with fur babies, reading romances and I can play one heck of a game of bowling. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

Anna Gozum

I am currently pursuing a degree in biology with a minor in neuroscience and Mandarin Chinese.  I hope to apply to medical school in the near future.  I currently volunteer at the Rose de Lima campus of the St. Rose Dominican Hospitals.  In my free time I love to binge watch crime dramas, my favorite being Criminal Minds.  I also enjoy watercolor painting, origami, and spending time with my family. I truly love volunteering because it has helped me overcome some (but not all) of my awkward shyness and I also believe it is a great way to get involved and give back to our local community.  I am really looking forward to what this upcoming school year will bring.  I’ll be happy to help if you have any questions about volunteering, school, or if you just need someone to vent your frustrations about the universe!
