Alexandra Hernandez, Candidate Member
University of Miami
I am currently a PGY-3 in General Surgery at the University of Miami, and began as a NIH T32 Postdoctoral Scholar in Surgical Oncology with a focus on health disparities amongst minority women with breast cancer. As a Hispanic woman in medicine with research experience in organizational diversity and discrimination, I am committed to diversity and inclusion in my research, career, and life. At my own institution I am involved in a group working to identify microaggressions towards female and minority residents. Through AAS, I am eager to make an impact on increasing DEI in academic surgery on a national level.
