Janet Mensah is currently attending the University of Colorado Denver and is currently majoring in Ethnic Studies. She is a first generation student and the second in her family to attend college. She is also on a pre-medicine track known as the BA/BS-MD program. She aspires to become a gastroenterologist and definitely feels that UPP will benefit her in her journey in becoming a well-rounded and successful health care provider. She is looking forward to gaining more knowledge about the healthcare field in general such as health disparities, patient care, patient privacy, etc. She also knows UPP will broaden her knowledge and appreciation for the different disciplines in the medical field. Janet also believes that UPP will help her create a close relationship with the other members in the program. She hopes to become one big happy family with the other members. Janet knew from the beginning UPP would challenge her for the better. She knew she would grow in her communication, writing, analyzing skills.
When Janet is not busy studying away, she can be found in a comfortable corner reading, singing, or just visualizing her future life as a physician. Janet is excited about the endless opportunities and challenges UPP has to offer and she cannot wait to take the steps needed to become a great healthcare provider. She is greatly appreciative to the Undergraduate Pre-Health Program for giving her this wonderful opportunity.
