U medical student wins Minority Scholar Award

Liz Medina Alm, a third-year medical student at the University of Minnesota Medical School, is also a mother of two, a mentor to several pre-med students, and a leader in the National Medical Association’s local student chapter—a juggling feat that’s attracted national notice.

The American Medical Association Foundation has selected Alm, a Native American, to receive its 2008 Minority Scholar Award, which recognizes scholastic achievement and promise for the future among medical students in groups defined as “historically underrepresented” in the medical profession.

Alm, whose professional goal is to improve health care for people of low socioeconomic status and people of color, is the third Medical School student to receive the award.
