This edition of our alumni spotlight shines a bright light on Dr. Andrea Bodale. Originally from Arizona, Andrea attended Baylor University, earning a B.S. in Biology. Constant family visits to the hospital coupled with her desire to help others feel heard, eventually led her to pursue a career in medicine. Dr. Bodale is now in her final year of residency as a Chief Family Medicine Resident at her top choice program
In this edition of our alumni spotlight, we are proud to showcase Dr. Allison Laffoon. Dr. Laffoon's desire for medicine was sparked when her younger brother was diagnosed with severe autism when he was just 5-years-old. She recalls the countless doctors' appointments, tests, and other factors that eventually led to her brother's diagnosis. Her interest in medicine stems from these experiences as a young child. Laffoon attended the University of Iowa and received her MD from Trinity in 2018. She is now a general surgery resident at the University of Texas Health - San Antonio.
According to a recent study in Sweden, being born into a family where one or both parents are physicians greatly increases the likelihood that the children will also become physicians. For doctors and sisters Maye and Nada Mohamed, that certainly rings true. Both Dr. Maye Mohamed and Dr. Nada Mohamed are graduates of Trinity and we recently had the pleasure of sitting down with them to talk about their experiences as students, graduates, and healthcare providers.
At a recent White Coat Ceremony, Dr. Humphrey gave a testament to how Trinity shaped him into the physician he is today, saying “I was able to achieve my dream career goals through Trinity. I went to a top internal medicine academic institution and one of the top infectious disease programs in the US, especially in tropical medicine research."
When we asked Dr. Brielle Cartwright what inspired her to go into medicine, she said the answer was simple: "Wanting to advocate for mental health patients who cannot advocate for themselves." Now, as a Psychiatrist, she works hard to help her patients maintain their mental and emotional stability and provide an underserved population with the care they deserve.
This Alumni Spotlight features Dr. Anitesh Jaswal. Of his career in medicine, Dr. Jaswal says, "“I am excited to start my professional journey and can’t thank everyone enough for the help over the years to get to today. I’m eager to do some good in another community with a fantastic program and become a better physician for the patients I’ll be honored to call mine.
