When Dana Siegel, MD, was a teacher and mentor to 4th grade students in an under-resourced public school as a City Year AmeriCorps Member prior to medical school, her primary goal was to help bridge education gaps, support equal opportunity for all students, and keep them on track to graduation. What she observed, however, was not just education gaps, but also underlying health care disparities that directly and indirectly impacted her students’ success in the classroom. It was during this time as a teacher that she decided to study medicine.
