Mohamed Ramy (2020)
Mohamed Ramy is a native of Cairo excited to study how cultures and their health systems evolve. He sees public policy as an opportunity to resolve the divisive inequalities present in healthcare. After completing his degree in Neuroscience at Amherst College, he undertook a Watson Fellowship focused on the healing of trauma among refugee communities and understanding their concept of “home.” Keen on implementing culturally-informed, cross-disciplinary health strategies in Egypt, Ramy hopes to learn from China’s attempts to provide universal healthcare to its 1.3 billion citizens, and more specifically how it plans to do so in rural settings. Ramy is 22 years old and from Egypt.
