Pablo Suarez, MS2

Latinx Medical Student Association (LMSA) Representative
What I do: 
Pablo was born and raised in Quito, Ecuador. From his experience with family separation due to an unjust immigration system, he grew a passion for equity and advocacy centered on immigrant and undocumented communities. He graduated from Yale in 2019 with a degree in Biology. At Yale, he interpreted for HAVEN, a free clinic providing healthcare services to uninsured/undocumented families. He also served as a counselor for STARS research program mentoring underrepresented students in STEM. After graduating, he conducted research on autoimmune neuromuscular diseases, and later received a Fulbright Fellowship to teach English in Brazil. Since his early return due to COVID, Pablo has researched health disparities of uterine fibroids in women of color by developing more equitable and inclusive research models. In PRIME-US, he hopes to continue to tackle social disparities with a community-based approach and looks forward to sharing his love for Latinx dancing, languages, sight-seeing, and fitness with his peers.
